Did you know that Sunday is the #InternationalDayoftheMidwife? For more than 30 years, INMED has empowered women to become volunteer health agents in their communities. Many have gone on to become midwives as a result. This is one of the many pathways INMED creates to help children get a healthy start in life and their families to achieve wellbeing and self-reliance.

INMED Parcerias para Crianças

In Brazil, we're training front-line food workers to make school meals more nutritious and delicious! Do you have a favorite memory of eating a school meal? Share it with us--good or bad!

Hoje foi o dia de treinamento das Merendeiras.
Essa é uma parte muito importante do Programa Crescer Saudável, uma vez que nossas crianças passam muitas horas nas escolas, onde fazem suas principais refeições.

Essa turma aprendeu na prática a porcionarem corretamente as refeições servidas para cada faixa etária.
Também reforçamos sobre:
* Higiene pessoal, dos alimentos e equipamentos
* Conceitos de educação nutricional e saúde
* Elaboração de pratos saudáveis e criativos

Parabéns a todas participantes e envolvidas! @ Senai Petrolina

Check out this plump catfish, just harvested from our #INMEDAquaponics system at Universität der Nelson-Mandela-Metropole in Port Elizabeth, South Africa - portelizabethbuzz.com. One down, 499 to go! It's how we're feeding hungry children and creating income-generation opportunities in distressed communities.
Mondelēz International #MondelezInternationalFoundation

The INMED South Africa’s aquaponics team in Port Elizabeth is getting ready to harvest a whopping 1 500 catfish of between 1.2 and 1.6 kg. These whoppers can be sold by the community-driven adaptive agriculture project and/or used to feed the community. Catfish are most commonly used in the aquaponics system, and once they grow to over a kilogram in weight, they can be eaten. Because the water in the system is fresh (no mud), the catfish are delicious and very nutritious. Once the bigger fish are harvested, the system welcomes new fingerlings to provide the nutrients needed for the ... See more
