Nutrition and the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child
Nutrition is mentioned by name only three times in the Convention on the Rights of the Child. However, through its emphasis upon food, health, and care, the Convention makes it clear that good nutrition should be regarded as a fundamental human right. This study reviews the progress that governments have made in implementing this aspect of the Convention, providing â€˜status reportsâ€™ on the inclusion of nutrition goals in individual â€˜National Programmes of Actionâ€™. The paper includes a background overview of the development of human nutrition as a science, together with a survey of current trends in thinking on the subject.
