Enfants du Monde prevents malnutrition in schools

In the schools, we train teachers and develop fun and educational activities to teach children and parents the principles of a healthy and nutritional diet using local products, in order to prevent malnutrition and improve resilience.

Transmitting the principles of a healthy and nutritious diet to children in Ambanja

In order to fight malnutrition, our team has developed different textbooks and games so that teachers can teach school children the principles of a healthy and nutritious diet.

  • A guide for the teachers, combining theory and practice. The guide contains basic information on nutritional principles, hygiene, malnutrition, as well as fun activities to perform in class. The goal is to change the eating habits of the pupils and their families.
  • A booklet in the form of a comic book for the children, whose story is based on three Malagasy characters that school children can easily identify with. They discover the principles of a healthy, nutritious, varied diet adapted to local eating habits.

This project is important to us and to the children as we learn how to better cook local food. The teaching manuals allow us to deepen our knowledge of good nutrition and make us autonomous in transmitting this knowledge to our school children.
