Very true. In the ongoing Rwanda PA, we have a chapter on stunting (which remains exceptionally high in Rwanda). The single main contributor to the high incidence of stunting is not a monotonous protein-poor diet ("unsufficient dietary diversity"), inadequate meal fequency, or even poverty. The single biggest contributor is unimproved sanitation, which explains why one of the poorest districts has stunting rates well below that of the wealthiest districts: For some reason sanitation is really good there.
