FOOD SECURITY THREATS AND MALNUTRITION: An Assessment Exercise at Igbo (Ada Foah)
“Food and nutrition insecurity can be experienced in several dimensions. The fundamental importance of sanitation in fighting malnutrition can never be overemphasized. The stunting suffered by children in this community is not only due to lack of nutritious food. Even with the little they get, the constant ambush of germs and bacteria from the environment may force their bodies to divert energy and nutrients away from growth and brain development to prioritize infection-fighting survival.”
