This paper condenses evidence and learning from a portfolio of innovative private and public models that have sought to improve the consumption of nutrientdense and vitamin-rich and mineral-rich complementary foods in children 6 to 24 months of age alongside breastfeeding. The portfolio consists of a diverse set of 23 projects in 17 countries in Africa,Asia,and Latin America carried out over a 6 year period between 2008 and 2014. With an initial target reach of 20 million,by December 2014 a total of 19 million beneficiaries have been reached,and cumulative coverage is expected to be almost 25 million by the end of 2015.
