Eating a Balanced Diet
This is the sixth in a series of posts about my recent foray into the interior of Papua.
While visiting villages in the interior, we met with women and shared a variety of information with them. Not everyone is literate and not everyone speaks Indonesian anyway, so we used a lot of visual aids.
The poster used for presenting information about nutrition showed a number of foods that make up a balanced diet: potatoes, beans, leafy greens, tomatoes, cucumbers, pineapples. You also have your pigs, fish, rabbits, frogs. And don’t forget your kuskus, bats, rats and grasshoppers.
