As the challenges of food security continue to rise, peak bodies have identified the inextricable link between early childhood health and the long-term economic GDP of third world countries. As such, ensuring children are healthy in developing nations is as much a moral responsibility as it is an economic necessity.

The India Food Ladder aims to tackle this problem, in a place where climate change has made traditional farming methods redundant. Current Food Ladder systems (including a half-acre project) are set up in schools and on village rooftops, feeding more than 5,000 people, and providing employment and education opportunities.
