SPRING/Bangladesh is collaborating with the Government of Bangladesh to improve maternal, infant, and young child nutrition in Bangladesh. An important step in this process is to ensure that relevant information about nutrition is accessible to the community. This poster provides practical examples of nutritious and affordable foods that can be made using locally-available items, with suggested proportions depicted on a plate. This allows for a more easily understood message about dietary diversity and a healthy diet. The poster also provides information about the health benefits of exclusive breastfeeding.
This Government of Bangladesh-endorsed poster is displayed in over 1,000 community clinics and other government health facilities around southern Bangladesh, and health workers used it as a job aid when providing nutrition counseling to pregnant or lactating women.
