develop general malnutrition,but it is especially for 1.children because they
need lots of food to grow well and stay healthy.2.Women of child bearing age
especially if they are pregnant or breastfeeding because they need extra food
to stay healthy,to have healthy babies and to do their daily work.3.Elderly
persons because they often lose their teeth and their taste for food,so they
cannot eat much at one time,even though they still need to eat well to stay
healthy.PREVENTING MALNUTRITION:To stay healthy,our body need plenty of good
food.The food should provide enough energy to keep us active and strong.Also,
it must help build,repair and protect the different parts of our bodies.To do
all this,we need to eat a combination of food every day By Isaac Charles.
