This WHO publication facilitates the implementation of existing guidelines on nutrition-specific and nutrition-sensitive actions that improve health and well-being of adolescents. The actions must take into account the heterogeneity of adolescents in general (physical growth, social development, expected responsibilities in the family, school or work status, etc.), and any programmes should allow participation of adolescents in governance, programme design, implementation, or monitoring and evaluation. Additional recommendations cover areas such as health diets, acute malnutrition, pregnancy, and physical activity.
