Designed for trainers of community health workers, these guidelines are intended to help them instruct, in a practical way, those workers in how to improve nutrition in their areas. The book is divided into nine modules, each concerned with a different aspect of the community health worker's training. Each module first sets forth the learning objectives, then describes the content of the training, and finally gives a number of exercises to test the trainee's learning. The book is illustrated with numerous line drawings and charts. Topics covered in the modules are (1) getting to know the community and its needs; (2) measuring and monitoring the growth and nutrition of children; (3) breast-feeding; (4) diets for young children; (5) nutrition of the mother; (6) identification, management, and prevention of common nutritional deficiencies; (7) diarrhea and nutrition; (8) nutrition and infection; and (9) nutrition and the community: getting started.
