Early life nutrition is central to the fight against undernutrition. Many countries have signed up to the Scaling Up Nutrition (SUN) movement and the 1,000 Days strategy that targets conception to age two. Micronutrient deficiencies, which often occur with other forms of undernutrition, are less visible, and are referred to as the ‘hidden hunger’. Micronutrient deficiencies associated with under-five mortality include vitamin A, zinc, iron, and iodine, collectively affecting over 1.2 million children annually.
