Stunting (defined as inadequate length or height for age) can reflect better than underweight the cumulative effects of child undernutrition and infection. Although the prevalence of stunting fell from an estimated 40% (1990) to 25% (2012), an estimated 162 million children under the age of five remain at risk of diminished cognitive and physical development.
