SUNBRIGHT is focused on addressing malnutrition through the promotion of optimal infant and young child feeding practices. The project has a specific target audience, including pregnant women, lactating mothers, single mothers, first-time mothers, teenage mothers, working mothers, and husbands/male caregivers. Its overarching goals and objectives encompass identifying the causal factors that contribute to undernutrition, advocating for appropriate feeding practices, expanding coverage through community support groups, and strengthening the capacity of local government units. To ensure effective intervention planning and design, the project employs a Knowledge, Attitudes, and Practices (KAP) survey to gather comprehensive insights into the prevailing situation among the target population. The survey findings serve as a cornerstone for developing tailored information campaigns, Socio Behavioral Change Communication materials, and training initiatives. By leveraging this evidence-based approach, the SUNBRIGHT Project aims to promote healthy feeding practices and enhance the well-being of infants and young children. This study aimed to assess the knowledge, attitude, and determinants of exclusive breast feeding and infant/child feeding among members of the community who were identified as pregnant, lactating mothers, single mothers, first-time mothers, teen-age mothers, working mothers and husband/male caregivers in Barangay Alabang, Muntinlupa, Philippines
