100 Ademap Kala kits distributed in Vanuatu

World Vision distributed 100 'Ademap Kala' kits, to people who came in to for check-ups at the Northern Provincial Hospital’s (NPH) Health Week.

The kits will be used towards achieving the goal of tackling the “double burden of disease” (stunting in children and obesity in adults) in Vanuatu by encouraging more nutritious foods in Pacific-appropriate portions for children, pregnant women and adults through simple but effective messaging.

 ‘Ademap Kala’ literally means that adding color to a meal will increase its nutritional value for anyone, a message which is easily understood by young and old with any level of literacy.

The kits funded by the Australian Government, are made up of simple tools such as plates with portion markers, cups and mugs with simple nutrition reminders like “Don’t put too much sugar in your tea” and “Drink Fresh Juice” (as opposed to the ubiquitous cordial) and will assist people to practice campaign messaging easily and with pleasure.

The kits also include a ‘Ademap Kala’ shopping bag, a refreshed cook book and poster.
