Mentor Mothers Use MUAC as helpful too for screening
Mentors shared with us that they are using the Mid-Upper arm Circumference (MUAC) as a practical tool to measure their children and detect possible issues with growth. Mothers use the simple tool to measure nutritional status with simple markers (green, yellow or red).
One comment which stood out:
“I liked the session where we leant about measuring children using MUAC because I did not know that you can measure your child at home and know that a child support to be this weight by this time.” –Parent & Group member
Mothers felt encouraged by the information and the confidence they gained to use their Road to Health Books at home.
