Poor nutrition threatens the growth and development of millions of children.
It’s unacceptable that, in a world that produces enough food to feed its entire population, over 3 billion people can’t even afford the cheapest healthy diet.
Poor diets and malnutrition aren’t a matter of personal choices – the world’s poorest people simply can’t access or afford to eat a healthy diet.
Malnutrition is a direct threat to every child’s right to good health and wellbeing. It can hold back their life chances and prospects for escaping poverty, denying them the chance to build a better future and help their communities prosper.
But we are changing this. We work in 46 countries and helped 25 million around the world fight hunger and malnutrition in 2020. However, millions of undernourished children remain in need of life-saving treatment.
