There is something we like about the specific nature of these guidelines from WHO on Adolescent Nutrition.
An extremely distilled 6-point summary is set out below:
1-3 are within the control of families, like the increase of some nutrition foods and the reduction of other foods; 4-6 are more about systems (fortification and supplementation).
The challenge is to find ways to nudge families towards the better choices. We believe that children themselves can be powerful agents of change if taught correctly and mobilised in a way they find interesting and fun. Take a look at our website for free posters and story books that can be used with young adolescents.
