This pilot project tested the feasibility of incorporating messages on infant feeding and behavior cues in order to improve breastfeeding and complementary feeding using the Care Group Model in current nutrition programming in Alta Verapaz, Guatemala. As part of the project, Food for the Hungry developed key educational messages, created educational materials using these messages, and trained Food for the Hungry/Guatemala staff on how to use the materials. As a result of the project, Food for the Hungry/Guatemala and the Carolina Global Breastfeeding Institute are expanding on the Care Group educational materials used to create a three module series focusing on early childhood development, breastfeeding and complementary feeding during the 1000 days.
