Improving young mothers' knowledge on food and nutrition
Ten young mothers and child carers in Battambang recently participated in the food and nutrition class taught by our social worker and midwife in our office there. They were re-introduced to the concepts of food and nutrition and the different food groups. One of the tasks for the participants was identifying nutrients-rich vegetables that are grown locally. There was also a participatory cooking demonstration in which they learned how to prepare a multi-ingredient porridge using vegetables available in the local markets. Other things discussed were food hygiene and safety practices.
Our staff will conduct follow up home visits to check on the mothers and carers and observe any changes in their practice.
