Summary: 

Nurses in training learn to assess the nutritional status of children under the age of five at a health centre in Tete province. WFP provides the centre with Super Cereal, a blend of corn and soya flour fortified with vitamins and minerals. The product, for the treatment of moderate malnutrition, is distributed to children, pregnant and nursing women, and patients living with HIV, AIDS, or TB. The provision of nutritional supplements at health centres is one of the means by which WFP supports the government’s National Nutritional Rehabilitation Programme, which aims to integrate the management of acute malnutrition into all health services.
