The scale of the challenge in tackling child malnutrition is undeniable. Millions of children are malnourished because of who they are and where they live. According to Global Hunger Index 2019, India’s ranked has slipped to 102 position of 117 countries. In the recent Lancet report which analysesstate level disease burden in India, malnutrition was the predominant risk factor for under-five mortality in every state of the country in 2017, accounting for 68·2% of the total under-5 deaths. In every state, where the disease burden is high, children are losing out either due to their ethnic background, their disabilities, their family’s low income, or by virtue of being migrant families.
