  3. Maternal and Child Nutrition: Focus on pregnant women and breastfeeding support for better maternal and child nutrition.
  4. Food Security: Establish food assistance programs for vulnerable populations during times of need.
  5. Nutrition Standards: Implement nutrition standards in school meals and healthcare facilities.

By fostering collaboration, promoting awareness, and implementing evidence-based interventions, Janaki and Thakurbaba Municipalities aim to enhance community health and well-being through improved nutrition.
