A total of 3737 centers is there under the project throughout the district. The objective of the Breast Feeding Week observing is to make the mothers aware of the positive impact on the child health due to breast feeding. In today’s scenario, most mothers are seen to keep away her child from breast feeding instead depend upon baby food and external milk. This has made most of the children prone to diseases.
