Babies get the best start in life when they are fed only breast milk until six months old and continue breastfeeding until at least age two. Though breastfeeding is one of the best ways to protect newborns from malnutrition, infections, disease, and death, today just four out of ten babies around the world are exclusively breastfed.
With co-investment from philanthropist Sir Chris Hohn, the CRI Foundation, the Eleanor Crook Foundation, and The ELMA Relief Foundation, this monumental commitment will drive more than a 50% increase in the number of severely malnourished children who receive treatment with Ready-to-use Therapeutic Food (RUTF), a lifesaving, nutrient-dense, peanut-based therapeutic food.
Journalists participating in ICFJ’s Global Nutrition and Food Security Reporting Fellowship published stories on the interconnection between malnutrition and climate change, breastfeeding for migrant mothers, insect farming, RUTF recovery and relapse, and more, to shed light on the drivers and solutions to the longstanding global malnutrition crisis.
