What is Malnutrition?
This video briefly details forms of malnutrition such as 'hidden hunger', which affects millions around the world.' This occurs when people consume what appears to be enough food, yet that food lacks the nutrients required to promote development and sustain health. Approximately 2 billion people worldwide–many of them children–suffer from hidden hunger.
Support for nutrition programs that target the first 2 years of life (1000 days) are important to avoiding a cycle of ongoing poverty and hunger.
