The United Nations Children's Fund will be “actively involved” in development and implementation of the School Nutrition Programme in Georgia, after the Georgian Education Minister Mikheil Chkhenkeli and Ghassan Khalil, the UNICEF representative in the country, on Wednesday signed a memorandum of cooperation for the initiative.

 

 

The Georgian Ministry of Education said that the Ministry’s National Centre for Education Quality Development and the National Centre for Professional Development of Teachers, would work on the School Nutrition Programme along with UNICEF, and noted that the “specially created” inter-agency working group would analyse the world practices of School Nutrition Programmes, conduct a situational analysis and assess the current situation to identify local infrastructural and logistical needs in the country.

Possible school nutrition models, quality standards, as well as legislative/regulatory frameworks, and healthy nutrition curriculum would also be developed by the parties,  while also conducting a “large-scale campaign” to raise awareness about the School Nutrition Programme.
