This guide is designed to help promote healthy and nutritious diets for families in the Kyrgyz Republic through the process of food preservation. Food preservation can help improve the diet of Kyrgyz families by ensuring year-round availability of vegetables, fruits, and other foods. This guide describes how families can use simple home storage and processing methods. Findings from recent research conducted in the Kyrgyz Republic found that those who preserved food were more likely to have improved diet quality and consume more essential nutrients, particularly during the lean seasons in late winter. This guide complements previous manuals produced by Strengthening Partnerships, Results, and Innovations in Nutrition Globally (SPRING).
