Innovation Description

This programme aims to study the impact on Child development parameters at 2 years of age through integrated intervention that will blend the nutrition intervention with parenting program and developing and promoting a social business plan. We will develop 1) ‘A Food Basket’ for pregnant women to ensure nutritional needs during pregnancy and 2) a parenting program aimed at enhancing knowledge and skills of caregiver for positive parenting. Intervention will be managed in close collaboration , support from the departments of public health and women and child development in Government. We intend to promote and support the Local Women Groups (LWGs) for creating a social franchise model in which women will be trained to develop Food Basket that will be purchased by pregnant women through voucher scheme of project. This social business model will be self sustainable and will help to enhance the motor, language and socio-emotional development of children in first 1000 days of life.
