A ‘taste of success’!
Itambira Island Seeds of Hope uses profit from tourism to help benefit the local community in a number of areas, including a variety of training courses.
We were delighted to host a group of local mums for a Food Security & Nutrition training course.
This popular course teaches important principles as well as providing tips and techniques for feeding the family.
Topics covered include:
- Eating three times a day
- Giving children breakfast before school
- Cooking food properly
- Boiling water to drink
- Balanced diet
- Weaning babies

Opening the meeting in style!
Stories from the course…
One of attendees – Evelyn – knew breast feeding was enough for her baby each day. However she unaware that when her baby reached 6 months old, she needed to wean with different types of food such as eggs and milk; and not rely on breast feeding alone for 12 months.
Celebrations and gifts!
At the end of the course there was a celebration and each attendee was given a ‘hoe’ to encourage them with food security.
The hoes were donated by gifts from the Christmas Appeal in the UK. They were so appreciative.
Celebrating success the Itambira way!
