“Cerelac is now N12k” – Nigerian father set to feed his 5-month-old son ‘eba’ over increase in price of baby feed (Video)

A Nigerian father has voiced his distress over the exorbitant increase in the price of baby food, prompting him to turn to a traditional Nigerian dish, ‘Eba’, for his 5-month-old son.

In a circulating video, the man expressed his frustration as he disclosed the staggering prices of popular baby food brands such as Cerelac and SME Gold, which have surged to N12,000 and N25,000 respectively.

Displaying the 14 tins of Cerelac and 7 tins of SME Gold his son has consumed, he humorously remarked that he might have to resort to feeding his child bits of Eba, as the cost of commercial baby food has become unmanageable.

In his words partly, “As from tomorrow, you go start to eat eba”.
