- Nutrition Education is interdisciplinary, combining the sectors of education, communication, nutrition, health and agriculture.
- Nutrition Education is integrative, because it helps to make the link between physical assets, such as agricultural production or rural infrastructure, and social assets, such as knowledge, attitudes and practices, for a better use of these goods.
- Nutrition Education enables sustainable and long-term behavioural changes in the field of food consumption and other nutrition related subjects, i.e. health practices.
- Nutrition Education facilitates the relationship between the project staff, the local leader and the target population through communication.
