There were a total of 60 participants in the leaflet group and 60 participants in pocketbooks with incidental sampling technique. Education of first thousands of days of life which contain chronic energy deficiency (CED), anaemia, initiation of breastfeeding, exclusive breastfeeding, weaning food and stunting topics was given by officer of Religious Affairs Office for three days.  Data were collected using a structured questionnaire through interviews.
