Equating the malnutrition afflicting many Nigerian children to what normally obtains in war-torn countries, First Lady Aisha Buhari, flagged up a campaign on Thursday to address the problem.

In a video message on her Instagram account, Aisha called on stakeholders, especially parents, to ensure their children eat nutritious food to nurture their body system to good health.

And she said they did not need to break the bank to do so, but only need to give them the right mix of food.

“Research has shown that one in every three children below the age of five in Nigeria suffered at least one form of malnutrition.

”Giving our children the right combination of food they need for proper mental and physical growth is a very important national duty that we all must perform.

”Let us help to reduce all forms of malnutrition. Let us show interest in the combination of food our children eat. Join me to fight malnutrition in children,” she said.
