The Weight of the Issue


Malnutrition, in all its forms, includes undernutrition (wasting, stunting, underweight), inadequate vitamins or minerals, overweight, obesity, and resulting diet-related noncommunicable diseases (World Health Organization).

Nearly half of all deaths in children under 5 can be attributed to undernutrition. This translates into the unnecessary loss of about 3 million young lives a year. About 12% of deaths in children under the age of 5 are a result of inadequate breastfeeding practices alone (UNICEF).


Malnutrition is a combination of factors: insufficient protein, energy, and micronutrients; frequent infections or disease; poor care and feeding practices; inadequate health services; and poor water and sanitation (UNICEF).

At the Alliance for Better Nutrition, we truly believe in the statement that "knowledge is power." Our member organizations are constantly looking for new information about the plight of the issue, since this is one of the only ways to accomplish the 2nd Sustainable Development Goal of "Zero Hunger" by 2030, as put forth by the United Nations.
