The National Food and Nutrition Strategic Plan (NFNSP) for Zambia covers 11 key strategic directions. These relate to improving food and nutrition, and give a major priority to new multi sector, synergistic efforts to strengthen and expand interventions related to and promote “the First 1,000 Most Critical Days” that prevent stunting in children less than two years of age. This strategy is multi-sectoral, founded in the National Food and Nutrition Policy of 2006, and incorporates a brief updated status review of key nutrition achievements and challenges. The NFNSP considers local and international food and nutrition research and recent efforts that support placing nutrition toward the centre of national development. The strategy is aligned as well with the global “Scale Up Nutrition” movement that calls for emphasis on well-proven, effective and low cost food and nutrition interventions.
