This book is a basic nutrition education material written for health workers, nutritionists, agricultural extension workers or other development workers in developing countries, who want to have to design effective nutrition education curricula and material. It provides an up-to-date summary of the relevant nutrition information and gives many suggestions on how to share this information when working with groups of people. The guide is divided into 11 topics that cover basic nutrition (including, of course, micronutrients needs), family food security, meal planning, food hygiene and the special feeding needs of children, women and men, and of elderly, sick and malnourished people. While the illustrations and food examples in this guide mainly reflect the situation in countries of Eastern and Southern Africa, the basic information in this book is relevant for all regions. Similar nutrition education material for developing countries worldwide can be prepared, taking this guide as an example. Suggestions for adapting the guide’s technical information to other areas, as well as for preparing a specific country version, are given.
