FAO Report - Improcing Complimentary Feeding in North-Western Cambodia_001FAO Report - Improving Complementary Feeding in Malawi_001

In February 2016, the Food and Agriculture Organization published detailed and thorough process reviews of two agriculture-nutrition education projects that aimed to improve infant and young child feeding (IYCF) practices using local foods – one in Malawi, and one in Cambodia. Each project delivered IYCF nutrition education through community-based caregiver groups, and food-based messages through farmer field schools.

The reviews themselves provide insight for program designers and managers considering similar projects, highlighting direct quotes from focus groups and interview participants on aspects of formative research, training-of-trainers, community participation & ownership, education materials, family environments, and program coordination.
