Nestlé Nutrition Institute Africa in collaboration with Nursing and Midwifery Council held a two-day workshop in Accra and Kumasi for 60 healthcare professionals.

The workshop provided practical information on child growth and development, infant feeding, early nutrition and long-term health, childhood nutrition, macronutrients and micronutrients.

Chioma Emma-Nwachukwu, Manager for Nestlé Nutrition Institute Africa in English-speaking Central and West Africa said nutrition is a key area in healthcare. She noted that as the world advanced, there was the need for healthcare professionals to constantly research, learn, and share information to upgrade their knowledge and skills in order to provide quality healthcare.

Harriet Aryeh, a participant thanked Nestlé for the opportunity to learn from the Nutrition Academy.

The Nutrition Academy is a unique program by the NNIA that provides the opportunity for paramedics to upgrade their knowledge in pediatric nutrition.
