Nutrition

Almost half of deaths for children under five years of age are attributed to malnutrition, and those children who survive have compromised cognitive and physical development. Feed the Future works with partners across the food and health system so families around the world have access to safe, affordable and nourishing diets. By investing in nutrition, Feed the Future is investing in a future where children survive, grow up to unlock their potential and become active contributors to their countries’ prosperity.
