There is strong evidence for the link between early childhood development (ECD) and nutrition, but gaps remain in understanding how to successfully integrate additional components of nurturing care with nutrition in holistic programs. The Nutrition subgroup of the Child Health Task Force hosted this panel discussion on lessons learnt integrating additional components of nurturing care with nutrition interventions in development and humanitarian contexts. Panelists shared experiences from multiple countries including Ghana, Kenya, Lesotho, Malawi, Sierra Leone, Sudan and Tanzania.
