Unequal Portions: Ending malnutrition for every last child

Good nutrition – a healthy, balanced, adequate diet – is a matter of life or death. And the difference between surviving or thriving. It is essential for a healthy immune system, to protect against disease throughout life. And it’s crucial for a country’s inclusive and sustainable development.

But progress in tackling malnutrition is far too slow. Millions of children are missing out on adequate nutrition because of who they are and where they live. They are discriminated against because of their ethnicity or disability; they are excluded because of their parents’ lack of income or after being forced from their homes.

This report tells the story of these forgotten children. And it sets out what is required to ensure every last child gets the nutrition they need. If we are serious about creating a world where no child is malnourished, we must tackle the discrimination and exclusion they face.
