Dear Ann and Marlou,

Here are nutrition-related websites that I find particularly useful.

- The Core group's Nutrition Working Group
http://www.coregroup.org/working_groups/nutrition.cfm
- The Global Alliance for Improved Nutrition
http://www.gainhealth.org/
- Positive Deviance Initiative's Hearth nutrition model
materials
http://www.positivedeviance.org/materials/


Happy holidays to you both,
