WFP warns of toddler malnutrition

Published on 04 September 2010

Less than 10 percent of Zimbabwe’s children aged two and under are consuming a diet that is “minimally acceptable”, the World Food Programme (WFP) warned in a report published last week. The UN agency said the majority of Zimbabwean toddlers were at risk of malnutrition due to a lack of balanced diets. “Only 8.4 percent of children under 2 are consuming a diet that is minimally acceptable,” WFP said in the latest Global Update: Food Security Monitoring released on Tuesday.
