The video uses a conversational style to highlight the importance of "upari aahar" or complementary feeding, along with breastfeeding for a child up to 2 years of age. The conversation encourages the caregiver to provide food consistency, meal frequency, diet diversity, amount of food, and age-specific feeding pattern to ensure an infant's proper growth. Avoiding junk food such as biscuit and chips is shown to be disadvantageous for the child's growth. The video also pays attention to following sanitation while cooking and feeding. It can be used by ASHA/ANM and other health workers to raise awareness amongst young parents.
