When should the Road-to-Health Card be used?

It is important that the Road-to-Health Card be presented by the mother every time the child attends a clinic or hospital or visits a private doctor. Each child must be weighed at every visit and the weight must be plotted accurately on the card. The pattern of weight gain must always be examined and the growth curve explained to the mother or caregiver. The type of feeding should be recorded on the card. If necessary, counseling or advice on feeding must be given. There is important information about the child on the card and this must be updated at each clinic visit.
