This manual targets rural youth leaders and extension technicians in order to help young people in the villages to understand the importance of nutrition and the best food for their health. This field handbook includes a total of 27 lesson plans, a nutrition board game that deal with the functions of food, the importance of a healthy diet, food safety, child feeding and growth monitoring. The handbook incorporates the experiential learning approach and emphasizes skills which will make learning about healthy nutrition more fun and more effective. While this handbook is specifically tailored to suit the needs and situation of Namibia, it can serve as an example of nutrition education material for other countries. The document is designed for use in non-formal settings, for example, youth groups. Many of the lesson plans can easily be adapted for use in formal settings, such as schools.
