Tina Van den Briel. She stated that the 1,000 days window of opportunity from conception to two years of age remains a pertinent framework for policies and programmes intended to improve child nutrition and survival. Speaking on the need to pay more attention to women and children nutrition, the senior adviser called for more attention to maternal nutrition and the nutrition of adolescent girls. She said: If you look at malnutrition in Nigeria, it is one of the 34 countries with 90 per cent of the global burden of malnutrition. In this country you have 10 million children who are still stunted. To improve child nutrition, maternal nutrition is the entry point. Also, there are over 1.2 billion adolescents in the world and 90 per cent of them live in low and medium income countries with very high fertility rate in their group a group very often not prepared mentally or physiologically to carry pregnancies. To this end, she advocated for better integration of nutrition specific interventions and nutrition sensitive interventions. The interventions she identified are; water, hygiene, sanitation interventions, agriculturally related interventions, social safety nets and a whole range of things that support nutrition specific interventions.

Quest for Quality Nutrition
Today, members of the LEAN (LaSalle Explorers Advocating Nutrition) Club were offering healthy snacks from a table in the Student Union building. Actually our tactic is, we tell them its free snacking, and then once they are eating it and trying it we tell them that its healthy, explains one club member. And they have no idea! And they are like, Oh, wow, this is actually really good and we can be healthy. Shikya Thomas, a junior, was biting. Very good thats very good! she said after enjoying a wheat cracker with low-fat cheese ranch dip. I dont know about the olives part, she continued, but everything else in there the tomatoes, the fat-free sour cream I wouldnt even have known that (it was fat free). It would make me want to change my food choices when I go to the supermarket. Other ideas being offered included buffalo-spiced cocktail nuts and apple-cinnamon cookies with no added sugar. The recipes were also handed out.
