49% of Nepali Children suffer from Chronic Malnutrition while 39% are underweight and 13% children are wasted due to acute malnutrition, the government revealed on Thursday.
“The fact that one in every two children is suffering from chronic malnutrition has severe consequences on intellectual capacity in the country. Nepal will always be deprived of its full potential if this is not addressed. This is a very serious concern for all,” said Director General of DOHS Dr Yeshovardhan Pradhan.
