About Nutrition Education
Point Hope teaches an average of 30 new mothers about infant and young child nutrition through counseling and cooking demonstrations. The mothers learn about how to properly wash, handle and cook the food they prepare daily, as well as learning about other foods available to them that will add extra nutrition (vitamins, minerals and proteins) to the diets of their children and entire household.
Another service Point Hope offers is to counsel adults, 50 persons on average, on nutrition-related diseases (diabetes, high blood pressure, iron deficiencies, gout, etc.) in regularly scheduled classes and one-on-one sessions.
