Nutrition program packages—such as the Nutrition Assessment, Counseling, and Support (NACS) toolkit, the Integration Management of Neonatal and Childhood Illnesses (IMNCI), the Integrated Community Case Management (iCCM) approach, and Essential Nutrition Actions/Essential Health Actions (ENA/EHA) framework for example—typically include training materials and job aids designed to improve nutritional status of infants and young children. While some of these packages are similar and others much different, they all compete for scarce human and financial resources for implementation in the same country or even region of a country. This report presents several generic program packages for frontline health and nutrition service delivery and clarifies what each can and can’t address. It is intended to help inform decisions related to adapting, updating, strengthening, or scaling up frontline nutrition services offered at the facility and/or community level.
