The Nutrition camps are community-based nutrition programmes for children who are at risk of protein-energy malnutrition. The intervention follows two approaches: one that encourages local knowledge and practices of child care and the other that educates mothers on cooking habits and on nutrition rich recipes for malnourished children.

Evidence shows that a large number of children affected by Severe Acute Malnutrition or SAM (without infection) and Moderate Acute Malnutrition (MAM) can be treated in their communities without being admitted to a health facility or therapeutic feeding centre.
