To address the problem of malnutrition among children, especially those of school age, the Federal Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development has proposed the introduction of school feeding as a pilot scheme in Sokoto State and the Federal Capital Territory in the 2014 budget. Malnutrition is one of the major causes of almost one out of every six children born in Nigeria dying before the age of five according to the Minister of Agric and Rural Development, Dr. Akinwunmi Adeshina.

Indicating that the ministry has achieved the MDGs number one goal of reducing by 50 per cent by 2015 the number of Nigerians exposed to hunger and extreme poverty well ahead of target, the Minister listed key intervention areas of the ministry within the period under review.

The minister said whatever the amount the ministry will receive in the 2014 budget year, a major target of the ministry’s intervention will be to raise the number of women farmers with access to Government’s growth enhancement support (GES) from 600, 000 in 2013 to 1.5 million this year.
