Abstract

The chief killers in this age group are severe forms of PEM as kwashiorkor and marasmus and other non nutritional disorders'. Many infections occur easily, persist longer and cause much mortality. Dietary inadequacies due to poverty; unavailability and ignorance are the causes of early childhood malnutrition.
