Evaluation of a face-to-face weaning food intervention in Kwara State, Nigeria : knowledge, trial, and adoption of a home-prepared weaning food.
This paper reports on the evaluation of a pilot intervention which used nutrition education techniques to introduce a fortified, home-prepared weaning food (eko ilera, « pap for health ») in 12 communities in Kwara State, Nigeria, from June to August, 1988.
The recipe added toasted cowpea flour, red palm oil, and sugar to increase the energy and protein density of the traditional maize or sorghum starch porridge used for weaning from 38 to 85 kcal and 0.8 to 2.0 g protein per 100 g.
