Positive Deviance (PD) Hearth approach is also a good strategy - Sustainable and long term which promotes community mobilization and ownership.

Dear AS,
As GOAL we have been developing an approach for the prevention of Malnutrition. This is called Nutrition Impact and Positive Practices. The approach has been piloted in 5 countries over the past 4 years and has been found to be agile, effective in curing MAM and preventing relapse with in 12 months in 99% of cases cured. Across the five countries where we have piloted we have had over 80% cure rates in children 6-59 months.
The NIPP approach involves formative research to identify key nutrition problems, their associated causes and uses Designing for Behaviour Change frameworks with barrier analyses to design positive impactful nutrition sensitive and specific activities. Community, male and female circles comprising households with or expose to malnutrition meet separately on a regular basis for 12 weeks and participate in practical behaviour change education sessions on maternal health and nutrition, infant and young children feeding (IYCF) practices and hygiene. Following graduation a representative sample of successful graduates are followed up to measure their sustained behaviour change. You can read more about the approach in the following article
