This presentation by the Infant & Young Child Nutrition (IYCN) project seeks to dispel the notion that increased income alone is adequate to improve nutrition. It advocates for the identification of the nutritionally vulnerable and the incorporation of a nutrition focus in the project design process. A process for assessing the potential nutritional impact of various intervention strategies is presented and explained.
