Scaling Up Nutrition Movement

The Scaling Up Nutrition (SUN) collaborative process that began in 2009 with the development of the Scale Up Nutrition Framework, has evolved into a Movement that is both stimulated and reinforced by political interest in nutrition among leaders of governments and development partners alike. 

Scaling Up Nutrition is a global push for action and investment to improve maternal and child nutrition. Evidence shows that proper nutrition during the 1000 days between a woman's pregnancy and her child's second birthday gives children a healthy start at life. Poor nutrition during this period leads to irreversible consequences such as stunted growth and impaired cognitive development. Improving nutrition is a precondition to achieving goals of eradicating poverty and hunger, reducing child mortality, improving maternal health and combating disease - which all contribute to a stronger future for communities and nations.
