Funded by the GCRF and MRC, PANChSHEEEL was an interdisciplinary, cross-sector study designed to explore the HEEE (Health, Education, Engineering and Environment) factors that influence Infant and Young Child Feeding (IYCF) practices and nutrition in India.


The project established an international collaboration between University College London (UCL), Save the Children, Jawaharlal Nehru University (JNU), Delhi and Indian Institute of Technology (IIT), Delhi in order to develop an effective intervention at a key stage of an infant’s cognitive and physical development. A multi-stakeholder panel was developed, with members of the local village community, health workers, school teachers, Angadwadi workers (midwives), community researchers and local community champions becoming key actors for bringing about meaningful change. This holistic, multi-sector and bottom-up approach facilitated a more organic intervention to address “what” and “how” infants were being fed.


The project’s journey has been documented through pictures and the stories from the community, capturing first-hand the different aspects that can influence Infant and Young Child Feeding (IYCF) practices and nutrition in rural India. Our team has documented these stories in a specially curated photobook freely available in hardcopies and in an e-version.
