Quality Diets for Better Health Healthy Living Clubs

Quality Diets for Better Health (QDBH) is a CIP-led intervention in the Southern Nations, Nationalities and Peoples’ and the Sidama regions in the South of Ethiopia. The project strives to reach 15,000 direct beneficiary households with OFSP planting material and nutrition training aiming mainly at improved diets and vitamin A intake of pregnant and lactating women and children under two years old. The training vehicle are so-called Healthy Living Clubs:  groups over 30 households that receive training in sweetpotato farming and appropriate child nutrition practices. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic face-to-face trainings could only be given to smaller groups and an adapted training program of four sessions was developed. This document contains the adapted training curriculum developed by Rollins School of Nutrition of Emory University, one of the project’s implementing partners.
