Problem

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.

}

Solution

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.
