    Promoting local produce to benefit farmers in Saint Kitts and Nevis- TCP/STK/3501 2017
    Also available in:

    As a net food importing country, Saint Kitts and Nevis is relatively food-insecure and vulnerable to extreme climatic events, as well as to global economic shocks caused by increasing food or energy prices. The Government is seeking to create employment and income-earning opportunities, particularly for women and young people, and is embarking on a path of agricultural renewal to reduce its food import bill. By increasing production and marketing of onions and cole crops (cabbage, broccoli and cauliflower), the present project was designed to contribute to the creation of rural employment opportunities and, by extension the improvement of national food and nutrition security.

    Promotion des produits locaux des agriculteurs à Saint-Kitts-et-Nevis- TCP/STK/3501 2017
    Also available in:

    En tant que pays importateur net de produits alimentaires, Saint-Kitts-et-Nevis risque de se retrouver en situation d’insécurité alimentaire et de devenir vulnérable aux événements climatiques extrêmes, ainsi qu’aux chocs économiques mondiaux causés par l’augmentation des prix des denrées alimentaires ou de l’énergie. Le gouvernement cherche à créer des possibilités d’emploi et de revenus, en particulier pour les femmes et les jeunes, et s’engage dans la voie du renouvellement agricole pour réduire sa facture d’importations alimentaires. Le présent projet, à travers l’augmentation de la production et de la commercialisation des oignons et des variétés de choux (chou, brocoli et chou-fleur), a été conçu pour contribuer à la création d’emplois en milieu rural et, par extension, à l’amélioration de la sécurité alimentaire et nutritionnelle nationale.

    Manual of food portion quantification – Saint Kitts and Nevis 2021
    Also available in:
    No results found.

    The Manual of Food Portion Quantification; Saint Kitts and Nevis was developed to assist individuals in recognizing and reporting their food and beverage intakes accurately during the National Individual Food Consumption Survey in SKN conducted in 2020. The Manual was designed to be used along with the 24-hour Dietary Recall Method, which was designed to assess the food consumption of individuals aged 18 to 65 years old. Additionally, it is expected that this Manual can be used in nutrition education programs to demonstrate the importance of adequate portion sizes in obesity control and the prevention, waste minimization and management of food cost. The Manual would also be a useful guide for ordering and preparing food and meeting nutrition needs of the population of SKN, as well as the citizens of the other Caribbean countries. The Manual includes 121 photos of single foods and recipes, as well as household measurements (e.g. cups, spoons), of which 85 were taken in SKN and 36 were taken in Brazil. All photos were taken using a similar methodology. The photos cover the measurement of most food groups, either by photos of portions or of household measurements. The weight of every portion in each photo and the volume of all utensils were recorded and are available at the end of the Manual.
