Mr Ado Manga, Officer in charge of Nutrition and Immunization in Kirfi CMAM center, told the News Agency of Nigeria on Saturday.
“We have given out our mobile numbers to clients to make contact before coming because they spend about N3,500 on transportation to the center,” he said.
Manga however, said that parents have been sensitized to use local crops to compliment their babies’ food.
“We sensitized them on the use of our local crops such as groundnut, soya beans, vegetable, beans and millet to feed their babies.
“I conduct house-to-house monitoring and parents are practicing the idea,” he said.
The Executive Chairman, Bauchi State Primary Healthcare Development Agency, Dr Rilwanu Mohammed, in a telephone interview, told NAN that the agency had since directed local government health officers with CMAM centers to collect the RUTF at the agency.
