Improved Nutrition

A healthy, productive life requires adequate nutrition. Yet millions of people around the world are undernourished, stunting the growth of both children and economies. Poor nutrition perpetuates the cycle of poverty and hunger, leading to poor health, lower levels of educational attainment, and reduced productivity and wages in adulthood. Tackling undernutrition requires strong leadership and high-impact interventions at scale in both health and agriculture. The good news is we’re making progress. Feed the Future works with a host of partners, including the Global Health Initiative and USAID Office of Food for Peace, to help families in more than 20 countries improve their nutrition and provide adequate nourishment for their children, especially in the 1,000 day window from pregnancy to a child’s second birthday. In fact, Feed the Future reached more than 12.5 million children globally last year with interventions designed to improve their nutrition. LEARN MORE >>
