Improving Nutrition Among Adolescent Girls

  • PREVIEW
  • READ ARTICLE
  • OPEN PDF

ISSN

Existing platforms and delivery channels that reach adolescents should be built upon to deliver nutritionspecific
services and enhance their potential to have a positive impact on nutrition (also indirectly), for the benefit of the adolescent girls themselves as well as that of their future children. Schools offer an obvious and very good
entry point, also to delay age at first pregnancy. For out-of-school adolescents, the use of other platforms should be explored, including making health system and community nutrition services more adolescentfriendly
and adding a nutrition focus to adolescentand youth-based programming. The food system, which largely affects what adolescents (choose to) eat, and mobile technology deserve further exploration as avenues through which to provide nutrition services and reinforce adolescent-specific nutrition and health messages.
