Growth Through Nutrition

Despite great progress, undernutrition rates in Ethiopia remain poor. The key child indicators of stunting, wasting and underweight are at unacceptably high levels nationwide. The key child malnutrition causes in Ethiopia are poor feeding practices (few children eat nutrient-dense vegetables and fruit or animal source foods), suboptimal hygiene and sanitation in the household and community, as well as poverty, food insecurity and gender dynamics.
