Despite overwhelming advances in medicine, science and technology, nearly a billion people – including 16 percent of the population of developing countries – were chronically hungry in 2010, according to the united Nations.1,2 This means that they have insufficient food to keep themselves active and healthy, and they do not get all the vitamins and minerals the body needs to function well.3 In developing countries, nearly 200 million children are chronically malnourished and undernutrition contributed to more than one-third of child deaths worldwide in 2009.4,5 In poorer nations, undernutrition affects one out of four preschool- aged children, and, among pregnant women, leads to one out of six infants born with low birth weight. Micronutrient deficiencies, also known as hidden hunger, affect 2 billion people worldwide and contribute to infections, birth defects and impaired physical and mental development. Stunting, a key indicator of chronic hidden hunger, affects about 195 million children globally.
