Type

Flipchart

 

Description

This flipchart is about food for babies. It covers ages from birth to six months, six months to one year, and over one year. It provides key messages for each of these age groups. This resource stresses the importance of breastfeeding throughout this period, and describes foods and drinks that are not good for babies/infants to eat in each of the age groups.

The flipchart uses colour pictures and photos to illustrate the key messages. Remote community members were invited to give advice on the flipchart content and layout, making it more relevant for people in these communities.
