Considering that half the children across the world between the ages of 6 months and 5 years have a nutritional deficiency of some sort, it can be difficult to determine where the break in the nutrition chain occurs. When children from that age already struggle with their nutrition, it’s hard to imagine that this will be rectified as they get older.
