Nepal suffers from widespread nutritional deficiencies, reflected in the high rates of micronutrient malnutrition
in preschool and school children as well as anemia and night blindness in women of reproductive age. Although poverty and low levels of education may be the basic causes, much can be done now to develop more appropriate nutritional practices and build a stronger, healthier population for the future. Providing methods to improve nutrition practices at community and household levels is one of the challenges. Nutrition must be meaningful and practical for families to capture their interest and motivate them to action. While much progress has been achieved, more still needs to be done to combat vitamin A d eficiency (VAD) in the country, with the support of development workers at the community level. These development workers from the various grassroots NGOs are the leaders and change agents in every community.
