Food and Nutrition Solution (FNS) Project, offers solutions to many healthy issues/problems facing a lot of people in today's world as a result of bad nutrition and risky life style caused by eating unbalanced diet. I am supporting this idea because health is the first human capital. Without good health you can not participate fully in economic, social and even political activities. HEALTH COMES FIRST!

Thank you Mr Sangawe for this real initiative. i pray to God that this project grow country wide, start provide training about nutrition is real big problem in our society, Most of parents don't know how to feed their kids.
This is a right time for this projects. please open branch at Dar es Salaam City, i will be your customer for sure and i will bring more and more customers

July 11, 2016 08:22

Mr. Olorunfemi Dayo - Daily purchases is good to my project because it helps to get fresh inputs ( especial perishable ingredients) and hence good and health products that make easy in meeting our objectives and this doesn't have much impact on cost and still i use bulk purchase on non- perishable inputs.
About target children that is good idea, we plan the better ways to meet their needs too, but current we meet them indirectly as we provide advice to their parents and that make easy for them to practice and share all important things with them.

July 10, 2016 22:34

Thanks Eliuruma Nyari for your courage, real is good to introduce things that have good impact to community especial in heath. On your advice to expand FNS vision in order to meet nutrition needs in East Africa at large is good idea, no worries about that I will look the way things change and if possible I will consider it in a new FNSs Future Strategic Plan.

He is the best ever cook and nutritionalist for sure in Tanzania

July 6, 2016 23:09

Hi Joseph, am already feeling hungry based on your recipe for launch. however, you talked about daily purchase of input/ food ingredients; does it amount to cost reduction which your business need?

compare an input purchase scenarios where you buy ingredients in bulk and observe the difference in cost or money saved.
from study on study it appearance malnutrition cases among children is worse over that of adult, could expand your target customers to be inclusive of meeting the balanced diet needs for child in your community?
my idea focused on tracking low birth weight of neonatal and adequate nutrition seems to be the best solution and not by administration of drug/syrup
you can makes recipe for infant I guess
