Project Name: Dietary Diversity Extension Project in Nauru
Project Description: In the present project, we plan to strengthen Nauruan’s “Dietary Diversity” effectively by the way of holding either “Dietary and Nutrition extension” in community and public health centre or “Food and Agriculture education” in schools. By these activities, we will raise Nauruan citizens and local NCDs patients’ awareness of Dietary Diversity, also we will promote their knowledge to this topic. Furthermore, we will intensify the education of agricultural production, environment and diet to the students and teachers, and help them to build up the concept of balanced diet. Last but not least, providing various vegetables and great animal-source of protein are also important compartment of the project. We are aim to improve the “Diet and Nutrition Status” of Nauru. There are four compartments in the project, including: 1. Dietary and Nutrition extension in community and public health centre. 2. Food and Agriculture education in schools for students and teachers. 3. Build up the basic concept of nutritional monitoring. 4. Build up a great source of production, such as vegetables, mushrooms and high-quality protein.
