Webinar: The Role of Animal Source Foods in Nutrition Security, Growth and Early Child Development: Benefits, Opportunities and Challenges

Animal sourced foods (ASFs) are nutrient-dense foods that when consumed in small amounts provide quality protein, vitamins, minerals, and amino acids, and all nutrients critical for growth and early child development. In this webinar, Dr. Shibani Ghosh will examine the role of Animal Source Foods in improving the nutritional status of vulnerable populations, present multi-country analyses assessing the role of the type of ASF and the total number of ASFs, and contextualize the opportunities and challenges in supporting actions promoting its consumption.

A second speaker, Dr. Getnet will focus on the role ASF plays in nutrition food security of smallholder farmers in Ethiopia based on findings from studies conducted under the Growth through Nutrition project.
