Total Attendance
Irene went to Budumba to teach about nutrition and basically teach about poor feeding or malnutrition. Irene started with a review of the previous lesson then asked the community members what they think is poor feeding. To some it meant eating a single meal a day,to others eating one type of meal for a long period of time and others not having a meal a day. Then on addition to that Irene explained in detail the meaning of poor feeding and gave examples of signs that show that an individual or a child is poorly fed. The community members asked several questions and views on how to have a healthy diet. Irene promised them to continue with more of the lesson the next time they meet and encouraged them to bring more members and to look out on the different signs of malnutrition.

Lesson Use Examples
Yes members have embraced the lessons and have tried out different health units to treat the different illnesses instead of using the lackluster herbs that have not helped them before
