Bangladesh Nutrition: Nutrition Direct Package

Research by Jonathan Rose suggests that direct nutritional interventions aimed at mothers, babies and small children in the first 1,000 days would yield improvements in physical and cognitive development. This would result in better educational achievements for children as they grow up as well as better health, and increased earnings later, upon entering the labor market. Rose’s analysis indicates that every Taka spent would generate a return to society of 18.8 Taka.
