  • This is how we work to ensure good nutrition

    1. Malnutrition has a range of different causes. Promoting good nutrition means we need to identify these causes in order to promote the key factors that will guarantee good nutrition.

    • Malnutrition is the outcome of a combination of inadequate and insufficient intake of energy and nutrients and frequent infections

    Proper intake of food

    • Getting the right nutrition from food and avoiding infectious diseases that are not properly treated are the basis of a good diet

    A healthy environment, preventative and free of disease

  • This is how we work to ensure a good diet

    2. You cannot have a sustained impact on malnutrition without dealing with the indirect causes and factors that produce it. Other risk prevention and reduction actions aimed at changing the reality of hunger must also be incorporated.
