Statistics

  • There are two types of malnutrition: protein-energy (lacking enough calories and protein for bone and muscle growth as well as energy for work) and micronutrient deficiency (not usually included).

    Poor nutrition causes neonatal deaths, mental and learning disabilities, poor health, blindness, and premature death.

    “Children who are poorly nourished suffer up to 160 days of illness each year. Poor nutrition plays a role in at least half of the 10.9 million child deaths each year—five million deaths.”
