The paradigmatic shift in the past decade in our understanding of the role of health and nutrition in school-age children has fundamental implications for the design of effective programs.

17 Worldwide the number of children enrolled in preprimary education has tripled since. Before conducting trend analyses of child nutritional status, it is important to ensure that estimates from various data sources are comparable over time.

Good nutrition plays a fundamental role in human health, survival and development. Optimal nutrition during the first days – between women’s pregnancy to child’s 2nd birthday – offers a unique window of opportunity to a healthier future.

Further, poverty has many dimensions, including mortality, morbidity, hunger, illiteracy, lack of fixed housing and lack of resources, and cannot be assessed with a single measurement method.

"Human Nutrition in the Developing World", an important new FAO textbook and reference work, brings together under one cover encyclopaedic knowledge on the subject, and puts nutrition into the broader context of human development. The page book is written not only for universities and training andtechnical institutions, but also for public policy-makers and programme planners and managers.
