In southern Madagascar, students at Beabo Primary School are participating in Tsikonina, a cooking competition promoting nutritious meals and healthy eating habits among children and families.

Organized by the UN, Tsikonina educates students on preparing healthy dishes using locally available ingredients, aiming to address challenges such as malnutrition and climate change while fostering sustainable development. Through this initiative, the UN and its partners empower communities to make positive changes in their dietary habits and overall well-being.

In addition to promoting healthy eating habits, Tsikonina underscores the importance of education in fostering long-term development. By engaging students in cooking competitions and nutrition education, the initiative empowers them with valuable life skills and knowledge that can positively impact their future health and well-being.

Through education, children are equipped to make informed choices about nutrition, leading to healthier lifestyles and stronger communities in the long run.
