Nutrition for the poorest families

This UNICEF film tells the story of a child nutrition initiative In Indonesia, where 'Baby Cafes' and health volunteers are helping young children and their families better handle the problem of poor nutrition. According to a new UNICEF report, ASEAN and WHO, 12 per cent of children in Indonesia suffer from wasting while a further 12 per cent are overweight. Known as the 'double burden of malnutrition,' this trend cuts across social groups and is increasingly common in middle-income countries such as Indonesia, Malaysia, the Philippines and Thailand.
