“To all mothers: Give your children complementary food! It is better for their growth, health and cognitive behaviour. I have seen the change with my own boy.”
- 19% of Ethiopian girls are married before their 15th birthday. Ensuring adolescent girls are well nourished and informed about the benefits of delaying marriage and first pregnancy will improve maternal health.
- 27% of Ethiopian women are chronically malnourished. This will ultimately lead to a low birth weight increasing the number of stunted children.
