QUTHING TO PROMOTE PROPER NUTRITION INTAKE FROM FAMILY LEVEL

Quthing, April 05 — In an effort to promote proper nutrition intake from family level, the implementation of a district plan to improve nutrition status will kick-off at different villages in Agricultural Resource centres of Quthing this month.

In an interview with the Agency, the District Nutrition Officer from Department of Agriculture and Food Security Mrs. ‘Makabelo Mokhesuoe said the district plan is intended to sensitise the community on increase of food types from three (3) to 12 following studies which revealed that Basotho lack micronutrients needed for healthy body growth.

She stated that micronutrients needed by Basotho are found in various food types that include fruits, vegetables, fruits, meat, and nuts. She added that their habit as they have been taught is to eat three types of food namely protein, starch and vegetables or fruits.
