Nutrition awareness and education for women is definitely important. It should not however be limited to women and adolescent girls. Men too need to be sensitized and made to realise the burden of work on farm and at home being shouldered by the women and its consequences. Better understanding and sharing or responsibilities at work and at home can help a great deal in addressing undernutrition in women. Easier said than done though!
