UNICEF correspondent Chris Niles reports on a UNICEF report that highlights the extent of stunting among the world's children. (unicef)

Stunting is low height for age in children. In tackling child undernutrition, there has been a shift from efforts to reduce the prevalence of underweight – inadequate weight for age – to prevention of stunting.

There is better understanding of the crucial importance of nutrition during the critical 1,000-day period covering pregnancy and the first two years of a child’s life, and of the fact that stunting reflects deficiencies during this period.

The damage that stunting causes to a child’s development is irreversible. Undernutrition early in life has major consequences for future educational, income and productivity outcomes.

A new report by UNICEF reveals the high prevalence of stunting in children under 5, but also outlines the tremendous opportunities that exist to make it a problem of the past.
