Project Information

The goal of the project was to reduce the incidence and severity of malnutrition among low-income, vulnerable and primarily rural children by expanding access to improved feeding practices, including giving fortified complementary foods to children 6 - 24 months of age. Based on an alliance of government, food producers, and non-government organizations (NGOs), the project enabled the National Institute of Nutrition (NIN) to further develop an innovative model for increasing production capacity by expanding sales, reducing unit costs, and lowering the prices to consumers, thereby improving the prospects for sustainability.

The project's specific objectives included:

  • Expanding localized, commercial production of a fortified, low-cost complementary food;
  • Developing and expanding the system of community-based complementary food sales, distribution and enhanced nutrition education;
  • Addressing barriers to accessing complemenaty food among the most poor and vulnerable; and
  • Addressing policy development and advocacy for long-term support for fortified complementary food.
