“2013 was a golden year for nutrition, with ramped up political attention and massive financial pledges. But 2014 has to be the year when this momentum is translated into measurable impact and child stunting dramatically reduces across the world. … With a new set of international development goals on the horizon, we should look back on this year as the watershed for nutrition — when the grand words and pledges of past high-level summits get turned into large-scale action, millions of children get healthy fulfilling lives” (3/14).
