Malnutrition is both over nutrition and under nutrition. As in Bangladesh the rapidity of under nutrition is too elevated, although slow, the rate of overweight and obesity in children and women is also rising. Under-nutrition results from micronutrient including essential vitamins and minerals deficiencies and both macro (protein energy deficiency). Malnutrition is anticipated to be causes of about 60% of maternal childhood and deaths in Bangladesh. Development in overall nutritional condition has been sluggish over the years. Rate of feasting and underweight both remain inappropriately very high in the country still.
