Fewer chil­dren suf­fer from stunted growth

Viet Nam News - - Opinion -

The rate of stunt­ing in chil­dren un­der five in Vieät Nam has fallen to 26.7 per cent, Dr Le Th H p, di­rec­tor of the National In­sti­tute of Nu­tri­tion, said.

This means one in four chil­dren un­der five is stunted, com­pared to one in three in 2010, she said.

A lack of mi­cronu­tri­ents for chil­dren re­mains a ma­jor chal­lenge, ac­cord­ing to the in­sti­tute.
