From , 4:04 pm on 24 March 2017

On the back of providing access to discounted fresh fish, Tonga's government is shipping thousands of baby ducks and chickens to villages to promote the consumption of lean meats.

The Ministry of Agriculture's technical advisor Viliami Taufa says ducklings and chicks have been sent across the country and are provided free of charge.

Mr Taufa told Koro Vaka'uta about the healthy eating scheme.
