Nutrient deficiency and Malnutrition in Children

Malnutrition is characterised as an imbalance between the nutrients the body demands and the nutrients it receives, which can present as either undernutrition or obesity. It can be classified as either protein energy malnutrition or micronutrient deficiency, according to the World Health Organization's definitions. Protein energy malnutrition appears between the ages of 6 months and 2 years, and is caused by irregular or absent breastfeeding, the initiation of low-protein diets, and multiple illnesses. Indicators such as wasting, stunting, being underweight, or obesity are used to quantify it. In the time leading up to the survey, wasting is described as a lack of adequate nutrition
