Children deserve the best start in life we can offer. Proper nutrition is a building block to a life of promise. But, unfortunately, the COVID-19 pandemic has exacerbated an already unfolding nutrition crisis. For example, in 2020, nearly 150 million children under 5 were stunted (too short for their age) and over 45 million were affected by wasting (too thin for their height). Currently the Senate is gathering co-sponsors for the Global Malnutrition Prevention and Treatment Act of 2021, as the House has already passed its version. Ask your senators to co-sponsor today.
