Description

Malnutrition is a major problem for children in Madhya Pradesh, India. An innovative solution is improving nutrition in rural areas, where an International Fund for Agricultural Development (IFAD) supported project is teaching farming women to rotate the production of nutrient-rich vegetables for home consumption. Communities have also started growing millets, which are rich in nutrients, and can be processed into energy for children. (Video courtesy of IFAD) UNIA #1622
