Nutrition Report 2019
In many of its project countries, Welthungerhilfe sees a wide gap between the required and actual quantity and quality of food consumption. Dietary energy, proteins, and high-quality fats are lacking, as are essential micronutrients such as vitamins and minerals. This has alarming consequences: Especially before and during pregnancy and breastfeeding, malnutrition severely impairs the function and development of mothers and their children, which can ultimately lead to irreversible physical and mental damage, especially in infants.
