Abstract: Presents nine packages of learning materials that can help health workers acquire skill in presenting the principles and practice of good nutrition to communities. Responding to the most common causes of poor nutrition in developing countries, each module follows a problem-oriented approach, featuring questions and answers, checklists, charts, games, stories, tests and exercises designed to make learning a participatory experience. Learning packages complement the training modules presented in Guidelines for Training Community Health Workers in Nutrition. The book gives particular attention to methods of teaching and learning that have proven their capacity to stimulate thinking, discovery, discussion, and the recognition and solving of problems. Learning aids range in nature from a nutrition snakes and ladders game to picture recipes for preparing weaning foods, from checklists for testing community traditional beliefs to stories showing the dangers of bottle feeding. Modules, each focused on a single topic, concentrate on ways of learning how to recognize and correct the causes of such common problems as nutrient deficiencies, deficiency-induced diseases, malnourishment, poor childhood growth, and diarrhoeal diseases
