Everyone are encouraged to apply these practices in the Therapeutic Feeding Centre (TFCs) during admissions, playtime or mealtime, and during outpatient treatment. This document can help nutrition program experts to implement child care practices through simple actions. It is presented as a step-by-step tool-kit.
