FAO defines School Food Nutrition Education as consisting of coherent educational strategies and learning activities, with environmental supports, which help schoolchildren and their communities to achieve sustainable improvements in their diets and in food- and lifestyle-related behaviours, perceptions, skills and knowledge; and to build the capacity to change, to adapt to external change and to act as agents of change. This publication is the scopy study and capacity needs assessment and final report for the SNEP project.

    Nutrition, food security and the elimination of hunger as a meansto achieve overall economic development are priority issues in Asiaand the Pacific, and there is growing recognition of the influence ofnutritional status on schoolchildren’s health, growth and development.One of the easiest ways to ensure access to a healthy diet is foodproduction in home or school gardens, which can further contributeto combatting hunger, poverty and illiteracy. Although many casestudies of school gardens show their contribution to reducing hungerand improving nutrition, a lack of support from national policies orstrategies has limited and scale and expansion of these practices.Therefore, as part of the Zero Hunger Challenge, this project aimedto develop sustainable, practical and replicable models for schoolgarden-based learning and home gardens in Bangladesh, the LaoPeople’s Democratic Republic, Myanmar, Nepal and Timor-Leste.
