He was brought to the BHU for follow up visits regularly and was treated with Acha Mum in the program and a significant change was noticed in each visit. Due to awareness session on IYCF reasonable improvement was seen in nutrition and hygiene practices. Reasonable improvement was shown by him as a result of regular and nutritious diet.
