nutrition

A small-scale study designed to provide a snapshot of voluntary and community organisations‟ activity in relation to maternal and infant nutrition across ethnic minority (EM) communities in Scotland.

The study was designed to provide some basic information about levels of activity, services offered and resources used to support this work. It looked for the major constraints and barriers that organisations face in working in this area and also their future learning and development needs.

It aims to highlight the key updates which were made to six universal resources produced by NHS Health Scotland during routine reviews in 2012.
