    • East Asia has seen a drop from 28 percent to 14 percent.
    • South Asia has seen a drop from 44 percent to 37 percent.
    • Africa has seen a drop from 48 percent to only 47 percent.
  • Malnutrition can severely affect a child’s intellectual development. Children who have stunted growth due to malnutrition score significantly lower on math and language achievement tests than do well-nourished children.
  • Fifty-four countries do not produce enough food to feed their populations, nor can they afford to import the necessary commodities to make up the gap. Most of these countries are in sub-Saharan Africa.

  • In developing countries, 91 children out of 1,000 die before their fifth birthday. By comparison, in the United States eight children in 1,000 will die before turning five years old.
  • Each day in the developing world, more than 30,000 children die from mostly preventable and treatable causes such as diarrhea, acute respiratory infections, measles or malaria. These diseases are far more deadly to children who are  malnourished, stunted or underweight.
  • More than 2 million children each year have severe visual problems due to lack of vitamin A.
  • Preschool and school-age children who experience severe hunger have higher levels of chronic illness, anxiety and depression, and behavior problems than children with no hunger, according to a recent study.
