This guide offers an approach that should help Task Managers plan more effective nutrition projects. Although malnutrition clearly is a complex problem, in many circumstances it is possible for programs to improve nutritional status by helping families make small but important improvements in child feeding and maternal nutrition that require little if any additional food or major hardware investments. The investments are primarily in human resource development – in changing attitudes and behaviours among policy makers, health care or agricultural agents, and mothers and other persons in communities and households.
