¿Did you know that stunted growth prevents children from developing their full physical and cognitive potential?

It is important to note that malnutrition in children is often a reflection of their potential food and nutrition insecurity; depending on how long children are exposed to conditions such as poor nutrition or disease, acute or chronic malnutrition can occur. Acute malnutrition indicates recent weight loss (weeks or months), while chronic malnutrition often indicates longer involvement (years), which is reflected in stunted growth.
