One in four children don’t grow properly because they don’t have enough of the right food. This lack of nutrients, vitamins and calories is called malnutrition.
Malnutrition is responsible for nearly half of all deaths of children under five. Millions more children live with the effects for the rest of their lives, because their bodies and brains haven’t developed the way they should.
Around the world, five malnourished children die every minute as a result of malnutrition.
