What is Stunting?
Stunting is a condition that arises from prolonged under-nutrition, and it affects physical and brain development. It manifests as shortness in height for a child’s age and hampered brain development.
Why should you be concerned?
1 in 3 of Indonesia’s children under the age of five years old are stunted!
Stunted children on average perform worse at school than their non-stunted counterparts, are more likely to be unemployed as adults, and are at higher risk of getting diseases like diabetes and hypertension. They are vulnerable to being trapped in an inter- generational cycle of poverty.
Stunting robs Indonesian children of their full potential. This is unjust as stunting is completely preventable.
