Feeding the future.

A new recipe for investing in nutrition.

You are what you eat.

When I think of babies, I usually picture my nephew when he was about three months old. He had adorably chubby legs and plump cheeks. But not all babies are chubby. Consider this: in 2015, 159 million children under the age of five were chronically malnourished or stunted.

See it, use it.

All too often, the information that fundraisers need to support their request for funding is buried in a report that’s been uploaded as a PDF to a website alongside hundreds of other reports. In the worst cases, reports languish unnoticed, unloved and unused. It’s a waste of knowledge. But that’s not going to happen to this research. By extracting the relevant information and presenting it in a selection of maps and charts on its own dedicated website, it’s easy for decision makers and advocates for nutritional funding to see what needs to be done to promote breastfeeding and reduce stunting, wasting and anemia across every region of the world.

Print and present.

For anyone that needs to prepare a briefing pack or compile this research into a longer report, there are options to download the data or print it out. Web pages print as beautifully as they appear online so there’s no need to copy and paste. Downloading the text as a CSV only takes two clicks of the mouse. With these options, the people who are advocating for greater investment in nutrition can tailor their presentation to meet the requirements and preferences of the person or organisation they are approaching.
