Steps of the Micronutrient Project’s Home Fortification with Micronutrient Powders (MNP):

While the efficacy and effectiveness of home fortification with MNP has been extensively evaluated, what needs to be determined are the different contextual elements that can lead to acceptability and adherence to the protocol. Regional differences in knowledge, attitudes and practices around complementary feeding, food sources, understanding of anemia and iron deficiency, are commonly found and these differences are relevant to the design of behaviour communication materials, including packaging and messages for caregivers. Our group has conducted the formative research to guide Home Fortification projects in several countries and know that this is an essential step towards successful implementation of the program, with the ultimate goal being scaled up multi-sectoral implementation plans for children 6-23 months of age.
