    Rural women play a key role in the agriculture and food system, yet, besides the agriculture activities, they have to do home chores as well. FAO, through the Rural Women Economic Empowerment project (RWEE) distributed energy-efficient cooking stoves to reduce the workload and so that they may get time to take care of themselves. During COVID-19 restrictions in Rwanda, husbands have been supporting women with the household chores to reduce their workload. New projects were launched to support the government of Rwanda, such as, one that will introduce fertilizer recommendations to improve Rwanda’s soil fertility and increase food security for smallholder farmers. As the world emerges out of the COVID-19 crisis, we celebrate the efforts of all the farmers who have kept the food chain/system going, making sure people can still get food in the middle of the COVID-19 crisis. We encourage people to eat fruits and vegetables to improve their immune system and promote healthy diets through the international year of fruits and vegetables running this year 2021.

    This Manual targets all professionals engaged in the improvement of family and child nutrition in Cambodia. It is specifically tailored to the needs of community workers from agriculture, women’s affairs and health and other development agents working with women, families and community groups. The aim of the Manual is to provide professionals with the basic principles of promoting good dietary practices using locally available nutritious foods that are in season, focusing on the prepar ation of safe and nutritious complementary foods for children 6 to 23 months of age. The publication is divided into five main parts, covering the different types of food and their functions, with an emphasis on key nutrients; the food needs of especially vulnerable groups, such as women and young children; food safety and personal and household hygiene; recommended feeding practices and recipes for infants and young children less than two years; and finally, how to conduct nutrition al counselling and cooking demonstrations. We hope that the information in this Manual will guide community workers in helping families to improve the feeding of infants and young children and thereby contribute to reducing malnutrition and improving the health of children and families in Cambodia.
