1. Project Background:

The Scaling Up Nutrition Program is a cross-ministry and multi-donor program

local government departments in target districts to plan, implement,

identified two main objectives that address stunting, including (1) Adequate
Quantity and Quality of Dietary Intake among Target Groups; and (2) Adequate
Health Conditions for Biological Utilization of Nutrients. SUN TA
interventions will increase access and availability of safe, diverse,
nutritious food; adoption of better child feeding and household hygiene
practices; and access to improved health, water and sanitation services. The
