The Nutrimad school feeding program (SFP), co-financed by SIGHT AND LIFE and the Ile de France regional council, is one of the three sections of the Nutrimad program, which is run by GRET (Research and Technological Exchange Group), the IRD (Institute of Research for Development), and the Labasan (Laboratory of Biochemistry Applied to the Food Sciences and Nutrition, of the University of Antananarivo, Madagascar) with the aim of contributing to the sustainable reduction of malnutrition in Madagascar. The objectives of the program are to counter immediate hunger and school failure rates, and to respond to the nutritional deficiencies of children from public primary schools within the framework of a sustain- able system of school snacks, overseen by the local authorities. The approach of the Nutrimad SFP was to introduce a snack that was accessible to everyone, i.e. inexpensive, made from lo- cal raw materials, liked by the children, readily obtainable and reproducible, i.e. easy to prepare within schools, and of good nu- tritional value, i.e. designed so that one portion covers a share of nutritional requirements cor- responding to the level of deficiencies generally observed in schoolchildren in Madagascar. The Nutrimad SFP was implemented during the 2004 – 2005 school year in 15 public primary schools in underprivileged districts of Antananarivo, according to the methods described in a previous issue of the SIGHT AND LIFE Newsletter (1). The program comprised two parts.
