Eggs For Some But Not For All In Lesotho

Improving nutrition and reducing stunting in children - low growth for age - is not easy. Part of the trick is getting parents to understand what difference a healthy diet can make for them and their youngsters. 

Overview

Lesotho is a lower middle-income country that is food-deficit and land-locked. Maize is the staple diet. A large proportion of poor rural households do not have access to agricultural land and many of those who own land do not have the necessary agricultural inputs such as fertilizers and high-yield seeds.
