Child Nutrition
Nutritional status of children below 5 is a significant determinant of growth and development. About 1 in every five children are malnourished, particularly in low and middle-income countries. The focus of good health and wellbeing should be on well-balanced nutrition during this period of development. Inadequate nutrition in children under 5 increases the risk of non-communicable diseases (NCDs) such as cancers, diabetes, and cardiovascular diseases (CVDs) in adulthood. Thus, the leading cause of premature death. Adequate feeding practices by caregivers before and after the weaning age tended to prevent the risks of NCDs.
Maternal Nutrition
Maternal health involves health and wellbeing of women before pregnancy, during pregnancy, childbirth, and the postpartum period. It revolves around child's spacing, prenatal and antenatal nutrients intake while adequate diet intake during breastfeeding is essential to ensuring a positive and sustaining experience. Food insecurity, particularly in low- and middle-income countries, contributes to poor feeding practices among women, and this affects the growth of a fetus in the "utero". Therefore, further awareness of the consequences of inadequate nutrient intake in women of childbearing age would be discussed to prevent the risks of low birth weight, infant and maternal mortality as well as undernutrition.
Nutrition through the life cycle
The health and wellbeing of a population are significant to its economic growth and development. “prevention is better than cure”. Therefore, we would critically discuss strategies which will help in promoting health and reducing the risks of diseases in a community. To this end, our focus is on eating healthy foods, modelling lifestyles that will complement nutrients intake and ensuring an environment free from diseases.
