The origin of the creation of the Nutricartes® method, an observation: It is easy to save children from malnutrition by giving them extra food for several weeks; however, programmes that fight against child malnutrition are not very common, results that seem to persist over time. It is from this observation that the creation of a nutritional education programme to prevent child malnutrition emerged as the answer to this problem.
The initiative allows the monitoring of children's growth in the months following the nutritional training and to observe the nutritional changes that the families have made. All of this helps to prevent families from having to travel to health centres.
