The nutritional status of adolescents in Bangladesh is deplorable. Sub-optimal nutrition during adolescence is mainly the consequence of interaction of socio-economic and environmental factors. Lack of proper knowledge, incorrect food habits, inability to fulfill additional dietary needs during pregnancy are some of the major causes which lead to this state. In rural areas, early and repeated childbearing further compromise the nutritional status of girls which contribute to higher maternal mortality rate and greater incidence of low birth weight babies in the rural areas.

Though 1000 days nutrition remains core of the USAID’s INCA, it also ventures further to address lifecycle approaches to prevent malnutrition. USAID’s INCA works with adolescent girls within the 1000 days households. USAID’s INCA through adolescent groups will carry out various SBCC activities including nutrition and hygiene session, interactive games. Adolescent girls will be play key role in organizing community based Nutrition Day.
