This project looks at Complementary feeding and hygiene practice among caregivers in Wadata ward Bida, Niger state. Infant feeding from birth up to the first two years of life influences and individuals whole life (WHO, 2008). It is a common knowledge that breastfeeding is important for optimal infant feeding thus, breastmilk alone can be used to properly feed infants in the first six months of life. However, complementary feeding is necessary, after this period (World Health, Organization 2007). The nutritional adequacy of complementary foods is essential for the protection of infant morbidity and mortality including malnutrition and overweight (ACC/SCN and WHO, 2010). Complement foods can be specially prepared for the infant or can be the same food available for the family members modified in order to meet the eating skills and needs of the infants (Mortorell and Khan, 2013).
