Chronic malnutrition

165 million children suffer from this form of malnutrition worldwide, according to UNICEF. Chronic malnutrition develops slowly when the child's diet is not balanced. A child suffering from chronic malnutrition for an extended period may display stunted growth. As his/her immune defenses are impaired, he/she is at greater risk of diseases such as malaria, diarrhea, etc.

A child identified as suffering from chronic malnutrition possesses a height to age ratio of less than -2 Z-scores. 

In order to be able to offer nutritional solutions to children and other vulnerable groups before their situations worsens and they enter the more serious stages of malnutrition, Nutriset has extended its range to include preventive products.
