    Malnutrition is responsible for about 300,000 deaths per year in children younger than 5 in developing countries. It also is indirectly linked to over half the deaths in children worldwide. Malnourished women are at high risk of giving birth to children with low birth weight, which can cause many problems in infants. In the U.S. malnutrition is rare, but in developing “more than 50% of the 10 million deaths” are either directly or indirectly linked to malnutrition in children under the age of 5.
