Malnutrition is estimated to contribute to more than one third of all child deaths, although it is rarely listed as the direct cause. Lack of access to highly nutritious foods, especially in the present context of rising food prices, is a common cause of malnutrition.

Poor feeding practices, such as inadequate breastfeeding, offering the wrong foods, and not ensuring that the child gets enough nutritious food, contribute to malnutrition. Infection – particularly frequent or persistent diarrhea, pneumonia, measles and malaria – also undermines a child’s nutritional status.

Due to long war between South and North, nutrition services were not integrated in existing primary health care services.

This resulted to the generalized malnutrition among children due to lack of basic nutrition information of care takers.
