Nutrition services typically do not prioritize adolescents and adolescent-friendly health services rarely include nutrition. Nutrition services need to be responsive to adolescents’ unique needs and priorities and address the barriers they face in accessing services. Programs must consider the diversity of adolescents’ situations and experiences, as well as the varied social norms and expectations of adolescents in the family and community. The Adolescent Nutrition Resource Bank includes guidelines and tools used in nutrition services for adolescents.If you have relevant service delivery documents or tools, please send them to info@advancingnutrition.org.
