Pulses for Improved Childhood Nutrition in Malawi and Cambodia

Over the past several years, FAO has supported projects in Malawi and Cambodia to improve childhood nutrition through agriculture and nutrition education for complementary feeding. Many of these interventions involved pulses. The interventions’ approaches, including their work to empower communities to grow and purchase a variety of foods to diversify diets, and lessons are detailed in this blog post, along with a discussion of the potential of pulses to be used further in improving nutrition as a complementary feeding resource.
