Malnutrition signifies to inadequacies, immoderations or imbalances in an individual’s consumption of nutrients or energy. Malnutrition may harmfully alternate the child's learning ability and intellectual development subsequently, health and productivity in advanced life. Nutritional status of under-five children is one of the markers of household well-being and the determining factor of child survival. Protein energy malnutrition (PEM) is a leading health obstruction in developing countries and the significant risk factor for morbidity and mortality especially among under five years children. The improved and balanced nutrition therefore, is the main necessity for the reduction or eliminating of infant and under-five death rates, the reassurance of social and mental development and physical growth of children as well as co-curricular and extra-curricular achievement. Many international and government agencies are working to reduce the malnutrition and risk associated with them.
