Fact from UNICEF / WHO / World Bank:
Child Stunting: 149.2 million
Stunting is the devastating result of poor nutrition in-utero and early childhood. Children suffering from stunting may never attain their full possible height and their brains may never develop to their full cognitive potential.
These children begin their lives at a marked disadvantage: they face learning difficulties in school,
earn less as adults, and face barriers to participation in their communities.
Globally, 149.2 million children under 5 suffered from stunting in 2020.
