Sub-goal SDG2.2 pledges to, by 2030, end all forms of malnutrition, including achieving, by 2025, the internationally agreed targets on stunting and wasting in children under 5 years of age, and address the nutritional needs of adolescent girls, pregnant and lactating women and older persons.
The SDG2.2 ambition spans malnutrition in all its forms: underweight, stunting, wasting, micronutrient deficiencies, overweight and obesity. Delivering good nutrition for all starts with good food that is safe and nutritious to consume – from breastmilk to fortified foods – and allows people to prosper and reach their fullest potential. It also requires strong and resilient structures for health systems, social protection systems and WASH.
Thematic areas include:
nutritious school meals; demystifying food fortification; promoting micronutrients as a best bet; diversifying food production.
