Poverty and inadequate food habits increase the risk of micronutrient and protein-energy deficiencies. In the highly precarious
contexts encountered in developing countries, school-age children are particularly vulnerable. At a crucial stage of their
development, they are hit hard by the effects of undernutrition. This both quantitative and qualitative insufficiency of food adds to the difficult school conditions and is an obstacle to successful schooling. Schools are a strategic location to reach these children and School Food Programs (SFPs) have been developed to provide them with food that complements their usual diet and can
even re-establish their micronutrient status.
