"Dream Big and Aim High" It is a popular saying that parents would use to help empower their children to be successful in whatever they choose to do in life and to overcome any obstacles that come their way. Ideally, all children will require the appropriate support and encouragement, as well as love and care, to ensure that their physical, social, emotional, and educational needs are met. That is why parents would go to great lengths to assist and encourage their children to reach their full potential. They want their children to do well in school, achieve their goals, and, most importantly, grow into fully independent, skilful adults. However, there is one issue that is frequently overlooked, and that is the stunting problem among our most precious children. According to a recent SEANUTS report, one in every seven children under the age of five in Peninsular Malaysia suffers from stunting. That is an extremely alarming figure. Thus, raising awareness about stunting and malnutrition is critical to effectively addressing the issue. What Can Be Done to Address the Child Stunt Problem Image credit: Canva First, it\u2019s important to know what exactly is stunting and how it impacts our kids. The World Health Organization (WHO) describes stunting as the impaired growth and development that children experience as a result of poor nutrition, recurrent infections, and inadequate psychosocial stimulation. A child is considered stunted if their height-for-age is more than two standard deviations below the WHO Child Growth Standards median. Furthermore, it is crucial to remember that stunting in early life has a negative functional impact on the child. This includes poor cognition and educational performance, low adult wages, and lost productivity. Also, when combined with excessive weight gain later in childhood, there is an increased risk of nutrition-related chronic diseases in adulthood. So, how can this condition in children be improved? Growing children need to receive all of the essential nutrients required to avoid or improve stunting.
