There were women and children involved in the following events of the table 1. nutritional education events:

As part of this process, the following results were achieved:

Diversity of food consumed:

During these events the preparation of food was promoted, reinforcing the use of three types of food for the three meal times.

Preparation of local recipes:

The use of local food recipes reinforced the development of these events. The members themselves prepared the local recipes.

Mega physical activation events:

Three mega physical activation events were developed, in which healthy drinking habits and physical activation were strengthened; the inclusion of children from care localities in these events was promoted. Plenty of children attended these events.
