The New Idea
For there to be improvement in nutrition, there must be a complete convergence of knowledge, policy and economics. Until this happens, conditions for women and children will not improve.

The traditional foods which were very nutritious have been replaced and forgotten for cash crops that do not have much nutritious value. A woman’s education and social status is critical to nutrition of a family and herself. To improve nutrition, women’s literacy must be improved.
