An enhanced homestead food production (EHFP) program for mothers and children in Nepal resulted in lower rates of anemia at follow-up, compared to those who did not receive the interventions. The components of the EHFP program were home gardening, poultry-raising, and nutrition education over a span of 2.5 years. Multi-sectoral interventions, including both agriculture and nutrition, appear to have potential for addressing anemia.
