Institute of Tropical Agriculture (IITA) in Ibadan, the Oyo state capital, while delivering a lecture on the importance of breastfeeding at the second edition of the CWAR Advanced Nutrition Programme for Anglophone countries in Central and West Africa.

Prof. Asiedu said breast milk is superior to Cow milk, adding that it is readily available, easily digestible, free and boosts immunity.
She said:"Cow milk is best for baby cows and human breast milk is best for human babies."
the scholar said exclusive breastfeeding has a contraceptive effect because it delays ovulation.
Encouraging women to use less of substitutes, such as cow milk, except for replacement purpose. Prof Asiedu urged Politicians, Health workers, Social workers and Husbands to be part of the breastfeeding campaign.

She said :"In Ghana, we are using volunteers in communities to promote health, nutrition and exclusive breastfeeding."
the event was organized by the Nestle Nutrition Institute Africa(NNIA), a multidisciplinary organization dedicated to Nutrition.
Prof. James Kweku Renner, an neonatal resuscitation was part of the work shop because malnutrition and asphyxia neonatorum are major contributors to Infant mortality.
