Reaching out to end malnutrition

Dietician Training for Health Professionals
Dietician Training for Health Professionals

The staff at the Nutritional Rehabilitation Home in Kathmandu screened 1,532 children last year for malnutrition and found that nearly 40 percent of them suffered from this life-threatening condition.

NYF staff referred 50 of the most severely malnourished children to the NRH for treatment and educated the mothers of 510 others who were found to be mildly or moderately malnourished.

NYF staff conducts “Nutritional Outreach Camps” throughout the country every year to identify children who need treatment. Last year, we organized four such camps and two smaller ones.

To celebrate Nepal’s national “Nutrition Week,” we organized a new screening camp in a local health post in Lalitpur.

In addition to treating malnourished children and teaching their mothers the basics of good nutrition, we offer Dietitian Training workshops for health professionals, focusing on diet counseling, menu preparation, nutritional awareness and improvement in kitchen management and cooking in hospitals. The 23 healthcare professionals who went through the training last year multiplied the effect by sharing their knowledge with other professionals in the team.

Thank you for helping us nourish these children.
