IN  what is capable of  sending shock waves to everyone, the United Nations Children's Fund (UNICEF) says it is alarmed at the stunning figure it took delivery of regarding over 34,000 cases of child malnutrition discovered last year in six of the 14 Local Government Areas of Zamfara State as a result of poor child feeding and lack of nutritional diet.
This was disclosed on Monday by the State Nutrition Officer, Samaila Bakwai in a paper he presented at a five-day workshop, organised and sponsored by the United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF) in Gusau, the state capital, in collaboration with the state Primary Health Care Board.
According to him, lack of proper attention to the issue of children’s nutrition is one of the challenges confronting the state health sector. 



He noted that the state government’s budget line for child malnutrition case was far inadequate, explaining that of the N100 million budgeted for nutrition last year, only N5 million was released.
He also disclosed that another problem threatening the program of addressing the menace of child malnutrition was the complete absence of budget line for malnutrition intervention at the local government level.
Bakwai, who said that due to the lapses, by 2016, the rate of child malnutrition had increased in the state by 4,000, compared to the 30,000 recorded cases in 2015, regretting that if this figure would be identified in only six local governments, “what then would be the situation in the entire state.

Samaila said: “As a result of the alarming rate of child malnutrition in the state, about 38 nutrition centres had been established in the six local government areas, while enlightenment advocacy on “Infant and Young Child Feeding (IYCF)” is being intensified to sensitise parents on the importance of proper feeding of their children.”
