Nutrition is a huge topic and in this issue we have chosen to concentrate on one of the most important stages of nutrition – the early years of life when a child learns to share in the family diet. This is a dangerous time for many young children. Two thirds of the deaths of young children aged 0–4 years in low and middle income countries are associated with malnutrition. The types of food given and the way in which babies are encouraged to eat are so important. Healthy and well-nourished babies grow into strong children better able to fight off disease.

We hope this issue provides a variety of ideas to help improve nutrition in your community.
