Determine the indicator's value by using the following methodology:
1) Define a limited number (4-6) of the most important childcare practices (including child feeding) that will be / have been promoted by the project. Examples of such practices are: giving children small snacks (e.g. local fruit); giving children food on their own plate (to ensure they eat their share); breastfeeding even when the mother is ill (e.g. with a cold); or ensuring that the child does not stay in areas contaminated by animal faeces.
2) Include in your questionnaire questions assessing whether the respondents follow these selected childcare practices.
3) Decide on how many of such practices the caregivers need to practice in order to be considered as “following the promoted childcare practices” (e.g. at least 4 out of 6 practices).
4) Conduct individual interviews with a representative sample of caretakers assessing whether they follow the selected childcare practices.
5) Count the number of respondents who follow the pre-defined minimum of the promoted childcare practices (see point 3 above).
6) To count the indicator’s value, divide the number of caretakers following (at least) the pre-defined minimum of the promoted childcare practices by the total number of respondents. Multiply the result by 100 to convert it to a percentage.
