Hello, 

I asked the team at Havard about their experience of this from the MEGA trial -study in Tanzania : Meals, Education, and Gardens for In-School Adolescents (MEGA), but they are just in the early stages of the project, but hopefully can share some insights on this in the future. 

Also, I saw this recent paper just published: Integrating nutrition into the education sector in low‐ and middle‐income countries: A framework for a win–win collaboration. They say "We reviewed the literature to identify existing frameworks outlining how nutrition programs can be delivered by and through the education sector and used these to build a comprehensive framework. We first organized nutrition programs in the education sector into (1) school food, meals, and food environment; (2) nutrition and health education; (3) physical activity and education; (4) school health services; and (5) water, sanitation, and hygiene (WASH) sector. We then discuss how each one can be successfully implemented." Sounds useful.
