Child malnutrition today

Globally, almost 200 million children under 5 suffer from stunting, wasting, or both and at least 340 million from the hidden hunger of vitamin and mineral deficiencies. At the same time, 40 million children under 5 are overweight and the toll from overweight and obesity keeps rising, even in lower-income countries. These patterns reflect a profound triple burden of malnutrition that threatens the survival, growth and development of children and of nations.
