In the Philippines, an estimated 14 percent of school children experience undernutrition. Schools provide strategic, targeted pathways to deliver nutrition to children and, indirectly, to their families and communities. The Integrated School Nutrition Model promotes integration of bio-intensive gardening, supplementary feeding (using iron-fortified rice) and nutrition education in public elementary schools in the Philippines. The approach has been proven to help reduce prevalence of undernutrition & anaemia; improve nutrition knowledge and practices of parents and children; and, increase access to safe, nutrient-dense vegetables.
