Tutor description

Over 4 in 10 children under the age of 5 in South Asia and Sub-Saharan Africa are undernourished. Their stunted height is a grisly marker of multiple deprivations of food intake, care and play, clean water, good sanitation and adequate health care. About 7-15% of children in the same regions are wasted, that is, very thin. Stunting and wasting in the first 1000 days after conception are depressingly accurate predictors of foregone individual and societal potential in current and future generations. During this time the body is laying down fundamental human hardware and software—and doing it very quickly with very demanding nutrient requirements. Any disturbance of this intensive activity, if not quickly reversed, has a terrible legacy.
