First Foods for Young Children

What are these videos about?

These series of videos cover the best practices of when, what and how to feed the first foods to young children aged 6–23 months. Using real home feeding situations, the video series show simple and feasible feeding practices introducing nutritious first foods for children from 6 months of age, including what to prepare, how to prepare it, how much and how often to feed as the infant grows, how to keep food safe, how to feed with care and how working mothers can continue to breastfeed their babies even after they start with first foods.

Both video series are similar in content but have been designed and edited differently to best suit the needs of their target audience. The mothers and caregivers’ series focuses more on improving knowledge and dissuading misconceptions, while the frontline workers’ series places more emphasis on the technical knowledge and how best to support caregivers.
