Adolescent Women Nutrition in Colombia and Vietnam


Adolescent and young women face grave nutritional challenges, but limited evidence exists on solutions to improve their diets. Supported by Fondation Botnar, Action-Research was done over three years (2020-2022) in secondary cities of Colombia (Medellin) and Vietnam (Thai Nguyen) to identify nutrient deficits in the diets of adolescent and young women; elaborate food-based recommendations to improve their nutritional status using Optifood linear programming; and engage respondents in incorporating suggested recommendations in their diet using a social innovation challenge approach. This virtual issue reports the findings of this research. See https://doi.org/10.1111/nyas.15068.
