Malnutrition is estimated to contribute to more than one third of child deaths globally.1 Malnutrition can take several forms, including hunger, undernutrition, overnutrition, and micronutrient deficiencies. Chronic undernutrition in children under the age of five results in stunting, which leads to cognitive impairment, with adverse effects all the way from household to national level.
