The process of understanding nutrition related problems, and of developing appropriate solutions – i.e., design thinking – can be quite challenging. In fact, there are far more examples of public health solutions that ignore the end-user than of ones that are built with the end-user in mind. For this very reason, the goal of this chapter is to convey the relevance of people-centered design to nutrition interventions, and to share some strategies for putting people at the heart of nutrition interventions.
The chapter uses case studies to consider the role of participatory photography, and grandmothers and indigenous knowledge systems in nutrition interventions.
