    According to the United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF), Nigeria has the highest malnutrition burden in Africa, with 17 million undernourished children.

    “Fed to Fail?” says the UNICEF report. According to the report, “The Crisis of Children’s Diets in Early Life,” released on Wednesday in Abuja, Nigeria ranked second in the world in terms of malnutrition burden.

    The report was released ahead of the United Nations (UN) Food Systems Summit in 2021, which will take place on September 23 in New York during the UN General Assembly.

    According to the research, one out of every three Nigerian children is stunted, and one out of every ten children is wasted, putting the country on track to meet SDG 2: “Zero Hunger” by 2030.

    “In an analysis of 91 countries, including Nigeria, half of the children aged six to 23 months globally, are not being fed the minimum recommended number of meals a day.

    “As a result, close to 17 million Nigerian children are undernourished (stunted and/or wasted), giving Nigeria the highest burden of malnutrition in Africa and the second highest in the world.

    “Nigeria is off-track to achieve SDG2: Zero Hunger by 2030. To change this trajectory, the time to act is now to reimagine not just food, but health and social protection systems,” the report advised.

    According to the UNICEF report, children under the age of two are particularly prone to malnutrition, including stunting, wasting, micronutrient deficiencies, overweight, and obesity.

    It was attributed to poor diets as a result of children’s larger requirement for critical nutrients per kilogram of body weight than during any other stage in their lives, according to the study.

      The picture has clearly shown the region where those undernourished children come from. Millions of naira reported having been spent to take care of children.
