Children’s Participation in Learning and Action for Nutrition: A basic guide

Publication year:






Children for Health,SETSAN, Secretariado Técnico de Segurança Alimentar e Nutricional

The Children’s Participation in Learning and Action for Nutrition (PCAAN) approach contributes to the reduction of chronic malnutrition by building and consolidating a platform that enables children to work together to create behaviour change for themselves, their peers, and their families. Through a participatory method, children in grades 4-7 are educated about nutrition and thus develop skills and attitudes that will help them understand and absorb this information effectively. It has been brought forward as a method to combat chronic malnutrition in Mozambique.

This publication will guide the planning, implementation, and monitoring of a PCAAN program.
