Childhood 29 Years

The nutritional problems of 2- to 5-year-old children are similar to those of younger children. The critical factors being that these children do not eat enough food and they are still susceptible to repeated bouts of infection. Because there is no obvious contact point with these children (e.g., measles immunization), it is difficult to deliver programs that reach them.

Children 6-9 years old can be reached through school feeding programs. School health programs increasingly include deworming, malaria chemopro-phylaxis, and iron supplementation to improve student nutrition and health. Where institutional feeding is provided, the potential exists to provide fortified food in a meal or as a snack food. In situations in which institutional feeding is not provided, community mobilization activities in primary education can incorporate messages to support student health and nutrition.
