School feeding in Nigeria provides a variety of meals (including OFSP) to pupils, as a mean to fight against vitamin A deficiency. In addition, it provides income to caterers & farmers. Even though OFSP is highly accepted by pupils and stakeholders, developing other markets is necessary so as to absorb excess production and to prevent incidence of unsold roots. This poster presents an overview of the school feeding program, pupils’ dietary diversity, projection for root supply to the schools, and development of other markets for OFSP.
