Smart Food processing for household nutrition and income generation was the focus of an outreach event at Tofa Local Government Area, Kano State. Ms Hafsat S Ibrahim, Gender officer, ICRISAT-Nigeria, gave a talk and taught women how to prepare the very popular, highly nutritious and cost-effective baby food “Tom-brown” by mixing soybean, groundnut and sorghum. Participants also witnessed a sorghum doughnut demo. Photo shows the 26 participants in their customized hijabs with improved sorghum seed packages that they can try out on their farms.
