The Kwazulu-Natal (KZN) Department of Health implemented a micronutrient powder pilot intervention program targeting children aged 6−24 months. The purpose of this intervention was to assess the acceptability and feasibility of introducing the micronutrient powder pilot intervention program into the current health system. Overall, micronutrient powders were accepted by the healthcare workers and by the mothers/caregivers. The KZN Province subsequently decided to implement the recommendations from the evaluation report in three districts to ensure proper alignment with current health systems.
