In section 5.23 of the Operational Guidance on IFE (2017), complementary food support options include:

- Protected eating and playing spaces
- Communal food preparation areas

I am looking for any existing guidance on the above - preferably resources which can be referenced as part of a guideline. (Context is Bangladesh - national level guidance)

Thank you!

Hi! In the Philippines, our group (LATCH Philippines), together with National Government Organization Kalusugan ng Mag-Ina, Inc and other volunteer mother support groups, were able to establish Mother-Baby Friendly Spaces after Typhoon Haiyan (Typhoon Yolanda in the Philippines). It was set up at Villamore AirBase, and Cebu. The establishment of the Mother-Baby Friendly Spaces were done in coordination with our own Department of Health in the Philippines

Similarly, when the siege (by terrorists) of Marawi City in Mindanao happened, Modern Nanays of Mindanao spearheaded the establishments fo Mother-Baby Friendly Spaces in Iligan. They can be messaged through the Facebook page and the Head of that Group is Nadine....
