This volume is a result of the interest of the United Nations University in the application of the results of its research networks conducting research on the food and nutrition problems of developing countries. It is based on a UNU co-sponsored workshop which summarized and evaluated the nutrition education programmes of Thailand and the Philippines and which also included in its proceedings the experiences with nutrition education in other Asian countries. The introductory contributions feature a critical review of existing methodologies for nutrition education in the Asian context. The experiences and lessons presented are of relevance and value to all developing countries.
