    The Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations has for years been assisting national governments and stakeholders to develop and strengthen their capacities to help equip and encourage teachers, students and young people all over the world to actively participate in creating a world free from hunger. Through FAO's field programmes and other activities, various communication networks have been established to facilitate exchange of information on best practices and lessons learnt reg arding nutrition education programmes. A range of resource materials for nutrition professionals, trainers and educators have been developed that provide up-to-date information for promoting healthy food consumption patters. Intended for use by teachers around the world, three easy to introduce teaching modules have been developed – for primary, intermediate, and secondary levels – all of which cover, in varying degrees of complexity, the topics of “What are hunger and malnutrition?”, “Who is malnourished?”, “Why is there hunger in the world?” and “What can we do to help end hunger and malnutrition?”. Background information and additional resources are provided to assist teachers in studying these topics with their students. Teachers around the world adapt and refine the materials, as necessary, to meet local needs and conditions. This report describes the outcome of the field implementation of the Feeding Minds, Fighting Hunger initiative by five project teams in the eastern, wester n and south-central regions of India. Materials were incorporated into classroom teaching and other activities by school teachers who underwent participatory training. Significant changes in children’s knowledge and perceptions of hunger, nutrition and food security were observed, demonstrating the feasibility of the approach.
