A review of the evidence was conducted to understand the trends and determinants of malnutrition and identify interventions and programs that improved maternal and child nutrition in Malawi. While children are less malnourished than two decades ago, one in three children remains stunted (37%), and 63% are anemic. Children born to younger and less educated mothers, or from poorer rural households are more likely to be malnourished. One in ten children is born with a low birth weight (< 2.5 kg), with nearly half of them stunted by age two.
