Facts for Feeding

This Facts for Feeding publication is from LINKAGES Project.


 

Facts for Feeding is a series of publications on recommended feeding and dietary practices to improve nutritional status at various points in life cycle. Policy makers, health care providers, and communicators can use these guidelines for developing messages and activities appropriate to local conditions.

Local assessments should be conducted to determine the emphasis to give to each of the recommended feeding practices, to identify audiences that are most receptive to change, and to design messages and activities based on audience profiles. Experience shows that focusing on a limited set of very specific behaviors is key to improving nutrition.

The following Facts for Feeding publications are from LINKAGES Project. Click here for a complete list of their publications.
