The UK has committed an additional £375 million of core funding to help feed the world's poorest children, as part of a £2.7 billion global agreement.
Participants at the G8 summit, who signed a Global Nutrition for Growth deal, committed their countries and organisations to:
- Improving the nutrition of 500 million pregnant women and young children.
- Reducing the number of children under five who are stunted by an additional 20 million.
- Saving the lives of at least 1.7 million children by preventing stunting, increasing breastfeeding and better treatment of severe and acute malnutrition.
