Briefing Note: Links between COVID-19 and Nutrition for Vulnerable Children

Spoon Foundation

COVID-19 presents increased risks of infection, malnutrition, and family separation for children without family care, families at risk of separation, and children with disabilities. Early action can mitigate these risks, and protect children’s abilities to grow and thrive. This briefing note from Spoon Foundation provides considerations for program implementers, policy makers, and funders of programs in nutrition, child protection, and early child development.
