Nutrition & Food Security for Children: You Can Make the Difference

On 7 June 2012, Gay Mitchell, Member of the European Parliament, and the World Vision EU Representation hosted a panel discussion “Europe Can Make the Difference: Ensure Nutrition & Food Security for Children” at the European Parliament in Brussels.

The aim of the event was to raise awareness of the preventable impacts of child malnutrition and deepen the political commitments and actions that should be taken by influential world leaders, in the context of persisting and emerging food security crises in East and West Africa.

The keynote speech was delivered by Dr. David Nabarro, Special Representative of the UN Secretary-General for Food Security and Nutrition. Other speakers at the event included various EU officials and World Vision global experts.

We took this opportunity to ask Mr. Nabarro why it is important to ensure nutrition and food security for children and what we can do to help.
