“Who eats what food in the family?”

“Who eats what food in the family?” This was a question posed to a group of high school students at a nutrition club meeting today in Mymensingh, Bangladesh. In this ‘Food Plate’ game, groups of students selected the food images that their grandfathers, grandmothers, fathers, mothers, brothers and sisters had eaten at their last evening meal. The differences were discussed keenly with the group. This group of 35 students have been meeting for a year and enjoy inspiring each other as well as their families with nutritious and safe ways of preparing food.  All of this was observed by Leigh Dowsett and Chris Grose who are currently visiting Bangladesh working with an FAO project ‘Meeting the Undernutrition Challenge’ (MUCH) as part of an institutional assessment assignment.

"I keep six honest serving-men
 (They taught me all I knew);
Their names are What and Why and When 
 And How and Where and Who."
