SNACK: Attacking malnutrition from all angles


The SNACK Pilot attacks malnutrition from a variety of angles - getting at its roots.

Some of  the ways it does this is through: nutritional awareness and education; cooking demos, training, radio messages; early detection of child malnutrition and ongoing monitoring of child development; food supplementation for infants and pregnant and nurisng women; support for treating child malnutrition at the community level; vegetable gardening (to diversify diets and generate income); and tools and training for health staff and local NGOs
