The Stunted children of India

Meal Time
Meal Time

Hello Everyone,

I am Neelam senior nurse on the People First community health team.

For all that you may read or hear about the economic growth of India, here in Bihar away from the cities little has changed.

The following is from a BBC article very recently published,

“India has the highest number of children suffering from stunted growth in the world, the charity WaterAid says in a new report.

The report, titled Caught Short, says India has at least 48 million stunted children under the age of five.

Nigeria and Pakistan rank second and third with 10.3 and 9.8 million stunted children respectively.

Stunting, which is a consequence of malnutrition in the first two years of a child's life, is largely irreversible. It also affects mental health. Apart from food shortage, other factors like poor sanitation and contaminated drinking water also cause malnutrition, leading to stunted growth among children”.

So you can see how important this nutritious meal programme is to help ensure child health.

Here’s what Rupa says….

Thank you so much for your help in giving us the wonderful tasty meal we get regularly in our village, my mother and the other mothers take turns to cook it for us, and it is the only time my belly feels full! I look forward to it so much!

Thank you all for your support,

Neelam
