Hal tersebut bertujuan untuk memberikan pengetahuan kepada orang tua mengenai kesehatan gizi bagi anak. Dengan adanya penyuluhan tersebut diharapkan tingkat kesehatan dan asupan gizi anak-anak di Desa Berdaya Sahkuda Bayu meningkat dan terhindar dari gizi buruk.

“Di desa ini ada beberapa balita yang terkena gizi buruk. Kami bekerjasama dengan pemerintah desa dan bidan untuk mewajibkan pemeriksaan setiap bulannya agar tidak ada yang terkena gizi buruk,” tutur Suherman.

Setelah ditelusuri, beberapa anak yang terkena gizi buruk tersebut ternyata tidak pernah diperiksakan kesehatannya ke Posyandu, sehingga kesehatan anak tidak terkontrol dengan baik. Selain diberikan berbagai penyuluhan mengenai pola hidup sehat, Suherman juga menghimbau warga untuk mengikuti program pemerintah, yaitu
BPJS Kesehatan. Menurutnya, hal tersebut bisa bermanfaat bagi masyarakat apabila suatu saat terjadi hal yang tidak diinginkan, sehingga bisa meringankan masyarakat dalam hal pembiayaan.
