All children deserve a healthy childhood, but there are many in our country who do not get adequate nutrition, timely immunizations, and proper healthcare. As a result, they often suffer from recurring diseases, stunted growth and in extreme cases, even face death. At 48.2 million, India already had the highest number of malnourished children in the world. Given the closure of government healthcare centres & midday meal systems during the lockdown, this number will only rise as more underprivileged children are unable to get healthcare and nutrition. In fact, a recent study predicts that 3 lakh children may die of malnutrition in the next 6 months.
2 of 3 child deaths, below the age of 5, are caused by malnutrition.*
