Proper nutrition is very important especially to children. This is to help them grow healthy and strong. Without proper nutrition, kids will get weak immune system and resistance that lead to sickness. There are millions of children around the world who suffer from malnutrition. A few reasons are poverty, less resources of food, and lack of awareness on health. Non-profit organizations are reaching out to countries to help fight malnutrition. Programs that include healthy food awareness are implemented accordingly to encourage households to take part.
There are also non-profit organizations that engage in child sponsorship programs. They help kids from the low income households to get sponsors to be able to assist them with school needs, nutrition, and wellness. This is such a noble thing to do. Helping the unfortunate children go to school and maintain healthy living is a great pledge.
On the other hand, the community should also engage in helping these kind of programs to succeed. Cooperation between the lower government officials and the people in the communities can make these happen. Livelihood projects for earning, good healthcare assistance, and nutrition awareness programs should be implemented with compassion so the children will benefit in many ways. In this way, we will overcome hunger and malnutrition.
In our own household, we can help fight malnutrition by eating the right diet and getting rid of bad eating habits. Foods from the food groups Go, Grow, and Glow foods should be present in each meal daily. Like I said, this is very important to keep our kids and family healthy and strong.
