Ensuring Optimal and Affordable Nutrition in the 1st Year of Life
The Promasidor Medical Information Services team recently organised a workshop titled "Ensuring Optimal and Affordable Nutrition in the first year of life” at the NECA House, Alausa, Ikeja, Lagos. The workshop is aimed at equipping Health Care Professionals with relevant information and skills to improve their knowledge on appropriate feeding practices (breastfeeding) in the first year of life and to showcase scientific and factual information on the quality and affordability of Promasidor’s range of Infant formula as supplementary, when there are challenges during breastfeeding.
Our Head of Marketing, Mr Festus Tettey, who declared the workshop open, spoke of Promasidor’s commitment to the benefits of breast feeding for all babies, but reiterated that appropriate knowledge of good nutrition is necessary where there are challenges.
Apart from the keynote address titled 'Feeding Babies in the first 6 months’ delivered by Dr (Mrs) Mazeedat Erinosho, there were other presentations, group discussions and interactive sessions by the Health Care Professionals at the workshop.
Certificates of Participation were issued to all participants while best group presentations and interactive sessions won gift prizes for themselves.
The Workshop was well attended by Nutrition Professionals, Community Health Workers and Health Educators from Primary Health Centres. Also in attendance were our Head of Marketing, Mr Festus Tettey and Head of Nursing Services in Lagos State, Mrs Toyin Odukoya.
