Abstract AVRDC conducted a survey on nutrition related issues, which was planned jointly with ICRISAT. While AVRDC will make the detailed results available as appropriate, the following indications are important for the future development of these research activities; The survey found that women who were participating, or had participated (Year 1) in the Nutrition Field Schools had a much better understanding of mal-nutrition, as well food groups, and food requirements to avoid malnutrition. There appear to be some differences in the recipes on preparing children’s porridges between villages that had training, and those that had not, however the study was conducted while the training was still going, and so the participants had not fully covered all the topics. The final results of this study, will guide further detailed studies.
