This video really helps pull together the science of early development with what we're learning about what makes interventions effective and the need to combine health, nutrition and stimulation.

How do the questions posed in this video shape our thinking about effective interventions? Should we be thinking about integrated (health, nurtrition, and stimulation) interventions or is there a way to think of developing modular interventions that can be assembled and deployed different ways for different populations?

On a process note, how does the format of the video (mid-length, narrated scribe) influence our thinking about how to delivery powerful messages about early development?

Thanks for the inspiring post! (also the graphic style is very attractive...)
Actually, the final recipe Food+Play is at the base of our idea, the "H@ppiness Game". We added also the Dream ingredient to help people to develop their projection skills.

It would be great to get your feedback on our idea:

Looking forward hearing from you.
