This brief outlines Kenya's initiative to enhance and strengthen the intersection between nutrition and family planning (FP) interventions in order to improve maternal and child outcomes through pregnancy spacing and better nutrition practices. This integrated approach reinforces messages about the importance of exclusive breastfeeding during the initial six months, continuation of breastfeeding when offering complementary food, and transition to another modern method of FP when the LAM criteria are no longer met.
