Nutrition is core of UNICEF’s work, says UNICEF Executive Director Henrietta Fore

 NEW YORK, 23 November 2020 – "Nutrition has long been at the core of UNICEF’s work. That’s because nutrition is at the core of every child’s health and wellbeing.

UNICEF Executive Director Henrietta Fore said,”Around the world, tens of millions of families are being hit by the economic fallout.We estimate that an additional 140 million children will fall into poverty — further threatening their access to nutritious and safe diets, and disrupting essential nutrition services”.

"We urge governments and partners alike to ensure that every child, young person, and women has the nutritious, safe, affordable and sustainable diets they need at every moment of life to meet their full potential. 

 "So, my question to all of you is, how do we make that happen collectively? How can we support young people and families to be agents of change in ensuring that every child, and every young person, has access to nutritious, safe, affordable and sustainable diets?

 

"Since the reports provide community’s perspectives, I hope they will be a useful tool for practitioners and policy makers in developing policies and programmes.

 


"We urge governments and partners alike to ensure that every child, young person, and women has the nutritious, safe, affordable and sustainable diets they need at every moment of life to meet their full potential.

 

"On a final note, I want to congratulate my colleagues in UNICEF Headquarters, Country Offices, and National Committees in 18 countries all over the world for making this project happen.

 

"I want to applaud the wonderful work of Amanda’s team at Western Sydney University, which led the design and analysis of the focus groups.

 

"I want to thank Peggy and Rafael for their invaluable wisdom and advice throughout this project.

 

"And I want to acknowledge the support of the governments of the Netherlands and Norway for partnering with us.

 

"Most importantly, I would like to express my gratitude towards the young mothers’ and young people who agreed to talk to us and sharing their candid insights and suggestions. Without all of you, this endeavor would not have been possible.
