Concern is implementing the Support for Nutrition Intervention Component (SNIC) programme in Mchinji district, Malawi. As part of the programme, Concern conducted an opertions research project with Emory University, which aimed to improve complementary feeding practices among families.
The objective of the study was to evaluate the effectivness of the feeding toolkit at inceasing the volume and consistency of complementary foods offered to infants and young children.
The study showed that using a feeding toolkit to improve complementary feeding behaviours for children 6-23 months of age is a promising approach for increasing the volume and consistency of complementary foods.
