Verified Funding


High malnutrition rates in part due to inadequate complementary feeding practices and poor diets as well as cultural beliefs and stigma surrounding egg consumption for young children.



Educational training to enhance productivity and promote feeding of one egg per day to young children

Target Beneficiaries

Smallholder producers, children under two

Competitive Advantage

Most nutrition-related interventions do not include animal-source food which are nutrient-dense and therefore have high potential to improve nutrition and cognitive development in young children.
