BANDUNG - The Governor of West Java asked the PKK Driving Team of the Province of West Java to be able to disseminate the OMABA (Toddler Food Ojek) program to all areas in West Java that function to send nutritious food to poorly nourished children.
"We entrusted to Atalia (Chairperson of the TP PKK) West Java, the OMABA program must be disseminated throughout West Java, we invest in the motorbike to send nutritious foods for emergencies, extreme malnutrition," said the Governor, at the Provincial Stunting Prevention event West Java, at Gasibu Field, Bandung, Sunday (18/11).
Based on data from the National Population and Family Planning Agency (BKKBN), in West Java alone there were 29.9% or 2.7 million children under five affected by stunting. According to the Governor, there are 13 districts in West Java that will be intervened by the stunting program to be more maximal.

"Garut is the highest stunting area in West Java, so that means if we work focus on the most needy, meaning because of stunting in 43% Garut, then the attention of the first two years is exaggerated for Garut regency. given twice, one and a half times as much, do not generalize, I have calculated this cryptic management does not resolve the acceleration, "he said.
