The HAMILTONSTYLE AWARDS 2015 is a professional initiative specifically endowed to highlight the dangers of poor child nutrition in order to promote excellent child nutrition from 0-24 months. HA 2015 therefore calls on writers and photographers to publish well researched stories and excellent newsy photographs that will arouse public attention and awareness to the essentials of child nutrition in Nigeria.
Our 2015 theme is SMART BABIES AND NUTRITION IN THEIR FIRST 1000 DAYS. This we hope will inspire mothers to care more about exclusive breast feeding and proper nutrient-rich infant formula for complimentary feeding of their babies especially in their first 1000 days of life and living. Brain and Body development in focus.
