The Child In Need Institute UK published a report on Child Malnutrition in India, on 15th May 2009.

The report includes practical recommendations about training mothers on how to prepare nutritious meal on the tightest of budgets, preventative healthcare that can help ward of illnesses that make it difficult to absorb nutrients, and the home treatment of diarrhoea.
