More Power with a Small Fish Powder: Preventing stunting in Cambodia

To prevent stunting, and give every Cambodian child the right start, children 6-23 months of age need food of animal origin daily. Fish, especially when the head and
bones are included, contains most nutrients needed for optimal child growth and development. Although Cambodians are the largest consumers of freshwater fish in the world, and small fish are available much of the year, only one out of two children 6-23 months from poor rural communities eat fish amid the fears of children choking on the bones and the time it takes caregivers—busy farmers and laborers—to cook for children.
