Effect of nutrition behaviour change communication delivered through radio on mothers' nutritional knowledge, child feeding practices and growth.

J Nutr Sci 2021 7;10:e44. Epub 2021 Jun 7.

International Institute of Tropical Agriculture (IITA), PMB 5320, Oyo Road, Ibadan, Nigeria.

Childhood undernutrition coupled with poor feeding practices continues to be public health problems in many parts of the world and efforts to address them remain elusive.
