Maternal and child nutrition contributes to more than one-third of child mortality and 10% of the total global disease burden. Of the nutrition factors associated with child mortality, stunting, severe acute malnutrition and intrauterine growth retardation constitute the major risk factors. Therefore, reducing infant and young child stunting is essential for achieving the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) related to child survival (MDG 4) as well as that related to the eradication of extreme poverty and hunger (MDG 1).
