UNICEF created generic IYCF counseling cards and a key messages booklet that provide excellent visual aids (flip charts, key messages, etc.) to use in most IYCF counseling programs. These may need to be translated into local languages. Also, pictures of people, clothing, and foods may need to be adapted for local culture and context.
