The author presents a model for efforts to improve nutrition for people in malnourished areas through use of highly nutritious indigenous plants. The problem of vitamin A deficiency in Malawi is used as an example. The leaves of Moringa oliefera, which are very high in vitamin A, are suggested as a possible solution. The author then outlines a model for identifying a nutritional problem, determining a potential local plant to solve the problem, determining its acceptability by local people, and implementing an educational “nutrition intervention” program.
