Universally, malnutrition is believed to contribute to nearly half of all child deaths. Malnutrition can be chronic, resulting to stunting. According to WHO Child Growth Standards that chart the progress of a reference population, a stunted child endures a short height with respect to age. An acute malnutrition causes wasting and a child who is wasted has a low weight for his height. Malnutrition is caused by not having enough of essential food and necessary nutrition. Among children, recurrent infections is the prime cause of malnutrition in many tropical countries. Mostly, inadequate nutrition restricts recovery from infection, thus setting up a vicious illness and malnutrition cycle.
