DFID is strengthening the nutrition outcomes of its water, sanitation and hygiene programmes by ensuring programmes target the specific needs of women and young children and by focusing on activities such as food preparation and storage, safe feeding for young children and handwashing with soap. These approaches will help to avert stunting, wasting and other forms of malnutrition.
