The International Symposium on Sustainable Food Systems for Healthy Diets and Improved Nutrition was jointly held by FAO and WHO in December 2016 to explore policies and programme options for shaping the food systems in ways that deliver foods for a healthy diet, focusing on concrete country experiences and challenges. This Symposium waas the first large-scale contribution under the UN Decade of Action for Nutrition 2016-2025. This presentation was part of Parallel session 2.3: Increasing access to healthy diets through social protection and income generation strategies"

Nutrition sensitive schools meals in Armenia, by Robert Stepanyan, Head of Development Programmes and Monitoring Department of the Ministry of Education

  1. 1. SCHOOL MEALS IN ARMENIA
  2. 2. Programme Overview 81,500 children every day eat nutritious and healthy meal 852 schools, both WFP and nationally administered Covering all country’s 10 provinces (7 WFP; 3 Government) 47% girls
  3. 3. School Meals are a vital Safety Net • School meals programme in Armenia is a vital safety-net for vulnerable populations which acts as an effective mechanism to reduce the pressure of families to resort negative coping strategies, such as withdrawing children from school. • A daily school meal provided to children 180 days a year, allows children to focus on their studies rather than their stomachs and helps to increase school enrolment and attendance, decrease drop-out rates, and improve cognitive abilities. These nutritious meals are rich in calories, vitamins, and minerals and they increase a child’s ability to learn and concentrate.
  4. 4. Importance of Nutrition • In 2015, 15 percent of the households in Armenia were food insecure and 28 percent at risk of becoming food insecure. • The coexistence of a triple burden of malnutrition: undernutrition, overweight or obesity and micronutrient deficiencies-is a growing challenge. According to Comprehensive Food Security Vulnerability Nutrition Analysis conducted jointly with WFP in 2016, there are 19 percent of stunted children, 15 percent of children overweight and more than one third of children with anemia below 5 years of age. • Enhanced nutrition and health of primary schoolchildren leads to improved learning and decreased morbidity, paving the way for healthier lives. School meals not only alleviate child hunger in school, but also enhance nutrition, particularly when the food is rich in micronutrients. This raises the potential to improve a child’s health, school performance and educational attainment.

  6. 6. Centralized vs. Decentralized • There are 2 coexisting school meals models in Armenia. • WFP provides an in-kind food directly to the schools which includes food for the preparation of the children’s meals and the reimbursement of the kitchen helpers’ work (1,700 women). • In the three provinces (Ararat, Vayots Dzor and Syunik), the Government provides each school with cash transfers of 140 drams (0.30 cents) per child daily based on the number of students participating in the Programme. Out of the 140 drams, 20 drams are used to pay the kitchen helpers and utility costs. In all the schools, school headmasters and parents councils work together in mobilizing parent and community cash and in-kind support.
  7. 7. Way Forward • Cash Based Transfers • Handover 1 province a year to the National Government • SABER Working Groups • School renovation/rehabilitation • Linking Agricultural Development with School Meals
