Re: The e-Consultation on Hunger, Food and Nutrition Security

Mike Matsimbe Malawi

I know that alot of people have discussed food security so I just want to add something on dealing with Malnutrition especially in relation to the issue of stunting. I believe if we could concentrate on animal protein intake boosting in countries like malawi we could reduce stunting and other nutrient difiency related problems. There is quite high intake of Carbohydrates and vegitables but very minimal on the animal protein. If the food security intervention were around small animals which could be easily consumed at household level then children would also benefited. Let interventions in the next period incorporate this.
