State of nutrition

By The Citizen Reporter
About 120 Tanzanian children below the age of five die every day due to malnutrition, a problem whose solution is however, at an arm's length reach. A new report says the country is facing a severe vitamin and mineral deficiency that besides the loss of life, also costs the nation a whooping Sh700 billion in loss of income annually.

Children are dying needlessly because their diets lack basic nutrients to build strong immune systems and stay healthy,says Irenei Kiria, Executive Director of Sikika.
