Health And Nutrition Awereness

Program Outline

Program Outline Undernutrition, vitamin and mineral deficiencies, obesity and diet-related chronic diseases exist side by side in many countries. Whether food supplies are scarce or abundant, it is essential that people know how best to make use of their resources to ensure nutritional wellbeing. To be adequately nourished, individuals need to have access to sufficient and good quality food and they need an understanding of what constitutes a good diet for health, as well as the skills and motivation to make good food choices.

The Nutrition Awareness Program focuses attention on the importance of making informed food choices and developing sound eating habits. In addition, it will provide the beneficiaries with the most valuable and credible source of timely, scientifically-based food and nutrition information. The program will deliver nutrition-related information and nutrition awareness among people from the local communities who are concerned about their health and well-being. The program is committed to expanding participants’ focus to include improving the overall health and wellness outcomes of their families, a critical factor in the overall goal of improving the educational outcomes of their children.

The courses under the GERA Nutrition Awareness Program generally aim to:

increase

knowledge of the nutritional value of foods and of a variety of nutritious foods.

Influance

behaviors, attitudes and beliefs.

develop

personal skills and motivation to adopt healthy eating practices.

The courses will be geared towards:

  • highlighting the importance and the elements of a well-balanced meal.
  • covering basic concepts of health and nutrition and how to apply these at home through a cooking class and how to create a healthy and holistic approach to family meals
  • raising nutrition awareness in pregnancy
  • raising health and nutrition awareness for kids
  • bringing nutrition & wellness awareness to the workplace

People with increased nutrition and health awareness around the country may become community leaders in developing and completing successful team projects across a range of education and health related concerns. An important focus of school and community improvement is nutrition. Parents learn that in addition to the educational achievement gap faced by children, their health is directly linked to nutrition and is a basis for serious concern.

The Nutrition Awareness Program intends to bring great value to the health of the families involved, and through education and advocacy, to the larger community. The nutrition awareness program aims to achieve positive effect on the lives of course participants through increased knowledge of nutrition, improved health behavior at home, and increased advocacy for change.
