Power of Nutrition

Alive & Thrive is an initiative in Vietnam aimed at improving infant and young child feeding by increasing rates of exclusive breastfeeding and improving complementary feeding practices.

A series of seven posters were placed in health facilities to reinforce messages received during counseling. They focus on no water in the first six months, exclusive breastfeeding, frequent breastfeeds, timely introduction of complementary foods, feeding iron-rich foods, and the critical 1,000 day window for brain growth and physical development.

This poster Identifies actions during pregnancy and the first 2 years to improve nutrition and the impact on child health, education, and economic development.
