The Feeding Practices Monitoring Tool is designed to help programmes track progress in achieving key practices/behaviours related to infant and young child feeding (IYCF) on an ongoing basis. The tool is designed for community workers to track individual behaviours during each counselling session or contact point with a caregiver, thereby providing a record of progress toward reaching an optimal mix of practices for the child. The tool is also designed so that data can be aggregated in real-time to assess changes in IYCF practices at the community, or possibly programme level. Through this function, it serves as a supervision support and program management tool. The data collected through this tool cannot be used to draw conclusions about program outcomes. The guidance provides step-by-step instructions for using the tool in different program settings.
