Jamshedpur, August 7: World Breastfeeding Week is celebrated across the world from 1 to 7 August. Inner Wheel Club of Jamshedpur East launched awareness programme for pregnant and new mothers at Khapchadungri village in Ghorabandha on Thursday, August 6.
Dr Meena Mukherjee said, for women who have recently become mothers, a healthy and nutritious diet is essential to boost lactation, just as much as its essential for a newborn to get its share of required nutrition. This makes it mandatory for the mother to consume food that will benefit her physical health and give her enough energy to combat post-pregnancy pressures, especially with the pandemic disrupting our daily lives. The club members also distributed horlicks, dry ration, masks and soaps to keep COVID -19 at bay. Also present at the event were Rama Khanna, President of Inner Wheel Club of Jamshedpur East, Meena Mukherjee and club editor Sanchiya Dey.
