Forty-one per cent of children in Nepal suffer from chronic malnutrition (DHS, 2011). The process of stunting occurs between the conception period and two years of age, and is irreversible afterwards. Furthermore, the population of Nepal, especially the most vulnerable - women and children, are affected by all the major micronutrient deficiencies.
This scourge of malnutrition increases risk of mortality in the early stages of infancy and childhood, impairs cognitive function of those who survive, hindering efforts to enhance national social and economic development and to attain all the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) from 1 to 6. The cost of mineral and micronutrient deficiencies alone in Nepal is estimated at 2-3 per cent of GDP (from US$ 250 to 375 million) annually (World Bank, 2011). Furthermore, for each baby born with low birth weight that survives (about 100 thousand a year), the life time losses in earnings are conservatively estimated to amount to at least US$ 500 (Alderman and Behrman, 2006) leading to the perpetuation of intergenerational poverty.
