Can Preschools or Early Childhood Development (ECD) Centers be a venue for promoting nutritious food consumption among young children? Can an integrated agriculture and nutrition intervention through an ECD center benefit children’s diet and reduce stunting? What are the various implications of introducing such interventions in preschools?
Commemorating World Food Day 2018 and its vision of a #ZeroHunger World by 2030, we welcome the International Food Policy Research Institute (IFPRI) to share global evidence and findings from a recent study in Malawi supporting the nexus between nutrition and young child development.
Featured Speaker: Aulo Gelli, Research Fellow, International Food Policy Research Institute
