Neither situation is a good one to be in .

Malnutrition in childhood and pregnancy has many adverse consequences for child survival and long-term well-being. It also has far-reaching consequences for human capital, economic productivity, and national development overall. The consequences of malnutrition should be a significant concern for policymakers in Malawi, where 1.07 million children (37 percent) under 5 years are suffering from chronic malnutrition (stunting or low height-for-age), according to the most recent Demographic and Health Survey (DHS).

So what can we do about it ? Is it preventable can we help ? If so what can we do ?

The answer in its self is very simlpe – EDUCATE 95% of Malawian are have never had access to information about how to feed they family protein rich meals with out expensive products they can’t afford.So we are working on putting together some resources packs to give to the local communities including a nutritional cooking guide,  To be handed out to The most vunrable members of the community. The first pack will also contain all the ingredients to make the first weeks meals , it’s sort of a Malwai style “hello fresh box “ ! If you feel you would like to  give a family a box and fresh idea on Health and nutrition please donate below just £20 can feed a family for 4 for a week in a Malwaian village. #changealife
