Since the 1920's, Chile has developed important maternal and child health programs.
The National Health Service (NHS) created in 1952 was decisive for the expansion and integration of the health and nutrition programs.
Presently, the Complementary Feeding Program (PNAC) operates within the health sector and covers 80% of the total population of children under 6 years, and pregnant and lactating women.
In the educational sector, two large scale food programs operate: the Day Care Food Program (JUNJI) covers 62,000 preschool children and the School Food Program (PAE) covers approximately 600,000 school children between 6 and 14 years of age.
