The report shared that children under-fives face multiple challenges such as high rate of stunting, wasting as well as overweight and so much more, and the progress is said to be far too slow to achieve the target on each challenges. On the other hands, among adults, women of reproductive age possess higher burden to anemia and underweight. Malnutrition status of reproductive women will affect low birth weight of newborn, malnutrition, and even further creates a vicious cycle where low quality of health will run from generation to generation.
