  • Notes: The school feeding—control difference column reports the school feeding coefficient of a basic OLS regression of each outcome over school feeding arm and controlling for child age in months. Standard errors are clustered at the community level. Lower sample sizes in the cognitive scores (as compared to the full longitudinal sample) reflect missing values in those scores.
