Demonstrating the food intake in Malawi
Published Feb. 22, 2017 2:45 PM

In Mangochi in Malawi researchers have mapped local food intake and habits to find simple and accessible nutrition advice for pregnant women. They are now testing how village volunteers can teach women to make small modifications to common dishes. The aim is to improve the intake and uptake of important nutrients during pregnancy, and increase the weight of both the mothers and their babies.
