Cirebon, (13/3). Cita Sehat successfully implemented The Toddler Nutrition Alert Program at Posyandu Cempaka, RW 02, Kel. Kesenden, Kec. Kejaksaan Agung, Cirebon City.
In addition to weighing, a Community health center called “Posyandu,” which has a target of 60 toddlers, also conducts immunization activities and provides additional food (PMT) in the form of nutritious local processed foods and bananas.
