Children Health Problems In Pakistan.

Malnutrition is the major health problem in Pakistani children. According to WHO data 2011,  43.7% of children in Pakistan are stunted (short height).                                                                                                                                                                                                              40% of children in Pakistan under five year of age have Iron deficiency, Zinc deficiency and Vitamin D deficiency. 54% of our children under five year age have vitamin A deficiency.                                                                                                                                          This a very unfortunate reality. All these problems can be easily avoided by a good nutritional advice and timely supplementation of essential vitamins and micro-nutrients. Parents should consult their pediatrician and get advice regarding nutrition of their children.
