|English||Many studies in different low-income countries showed that motherís schooling has a
significant positive impact on child nutrition. This study investigates the direct contribution that motherís schooling provides to child food security. It analyses the life-skills (e.g. processing information concerning nutrition, health, and hygiene) and productive skills (professional abilities) that are the most relevant channels through which motherís schooling indirectly contributes to ensure children food security.
This research focuses on rural households living in Mozambique.
The analysis has carried out using data from the Demographic and Health Surveys
(DHS) 2003 on 4,776 rural children with an age below 60 months.
The study is of special interest to school teachers and rural development specialists. It is also a useful tool for university professors, students and researchers of the education sectors.|
