Children’s Action for Nutrition Teaching Guide

Children’s Action for Nutrition Teaching Guide

This 60-page digital teaching guide was co-created by Children for Health and teachers in Mozambique over a two-year period and used as part of a pilot programme. The programme is called PCAAN, a Portuguese acronym that translates as ‘children’s Participation and Action for Nutrition.’ We are working on a Portuguese version and expect to publish this in 2017. Please note, we do not sell hard copies. 

We think that this Teaching Guide will have great value for anyone interested in using participatory approaches to promote nutrition in communities. Here is the Table of Contents.
