The solutions to malnutrition are practical, basic and have to be applied at scale and prioritized in the national development agenda. Kenya has shown renewed commitment to nutrition which is well articulated in the Food and Nutrition Security Policy and Kenya Health Strategic Plan. Therefore, development of this National Nutrition Action Plan (NNAP) provides practical guidance to implementation of Kenya’s commitments to nutrition. The NNAP provides a framework for coordinated implementation of high impact nutrition intervention by government and nutrition stakeholders for maximum impacts at all levels. Most of these interventions are part of Scaling Up Nutrition (SUN) actions that are being implemented globally to accelerate efforts towards meeting MDG 4 and 5. The NNAP is aligned to government’s Medium Term Plans (MTPs) to facilitate mainstreaming of the nutrition budgeting process into national development plans, and hence, allocation of resources to nutrition programmes.
