We recently received a request from a network member in Guatemala for advice on the topic of family nutrition during the COVID-19 pandemic. I’d like to open the question up to the wider network so you all might share any lessons learned in this time or in past experiences.
“Do any of you have recommendations or simple recipes to maintain good nutrition during this time of quarantine? We are facing this challenge with the families we serve (in extreme poverty), several no longer have a job, there is no food on the table. We are taking grocery bags and hygiene kits, water, as well as a cereal called: incaparina- it is a source of nutrients. But we wanted to know if there is anything else we should consider to teach the families on caring for themselves each day with the little resources they have. We also want to take care of our collaborators - give little tips. If any of you have materials or advice we would greatly appreciate it!”
