Cracking the Egg’s Potential to Improve Child Growth and Development
The World Bank Group’s SecureNutrition platform and the Food Safety and Quality Global Solution Group of the World Bank Agriculture Global Practice are hosting a seminar on November 16, 2017 entitled “Cracking the Egg’s Potential to Improve Child Growth and Development.” This seminar will focus on the findings from a randomized controlled trial in Ecuador that provided eggs as part of the complementary feeding diet to young children. Results show that stunting was reduced by 47 percent and this webinar will discuss why eggs can be a potential method to addressing undernutrition.
