Three large-scale social protection schemes – the Productive Safety Net Program (PSNP) in Ethiopia; the National Rural Employment Guarantee Scheme (NREGS) in India; and the Juntos conditional cash transfer program in Peru – have been successful in diverting resources from adults to children, thereby reducing inequality within households. New research analyzing data from Young Lives, a longitudinal study of the changing nature of childhood poverty, finds that families enrolled in these programs experience a reduction in child undernutrition. But not all poor and undernourished children are reached because they are spread across the distribution of households by per capita expenditure.
