Using media engages learner’s maximum senses so that they can retain the information. The present study aims to develop and evaluate Information Materials (IM) on weaning practices and to see the variation in awareness about weaning practices. Based on the literature reviewed, three types of Information Materials on recommended weaning practices i.e. Visual, Audio, and Audio-visual Aid was developed for the study and varied combination was administered to find difference in gain in weaning awareness. Three types of Information materials on recommended weaning practices i.e., Visual (seven charts), Audio of six minutes duration and Audio-Visual (video of 12 minutes and 33 seconds) Aid were developed. Evaluation of IM was done by content validation and appropriateness. The overall evaluation of different aspects of Visual Aid, Audio Aid and Audio-visual Aid by experts for each parameter was found to be between 2.75 to 2.86; 2.76 to 2.86 and 2.76 to 2.89 respectively.
