Sneha Rout is a public health nutritionist with over seven years of experience in the field. She has collaborated with several governmental and international organizations like UNICEF, primarily on prevention of malnutrition in children below the age of five years. She is a trainer on facility-based management of severe-acute malnutrition (F-SAM), certified infant and young child feeding (IYCF) and social, behavioural and communication change (SBCC) specialist. She is pursuing Master’s in Public Health Nutrition at Tulane School of Public Health and Tropical Medicine.

In one of her work experiences, she incorporated narrative therapy in a nutrition rehabilitation centre in Bankura, India. The idea was to promote knowledge and nutrition behaviour change in parents and children during their stay for medical nutrition therapy over three to four weeks depending upon the disease severity and recuperation. She used educative tools in storytelling format in addition to redesigning the children wards with jingles on food in the local language. Her counselling technique included a guided non-invasive interaction with mothers to understand them better on their challenges at home.

She is a 2020 – 2021 Design Thinking graduate assistant and wishes to adapt innovative approaches in malnutrition prevention and utilize her prior experience into developing a nutrition narrative therapy tool that can be easily implemented in developing countries especially in emergency situations.
