A PROJECT BY UTM RESEARCHERS

STOP STUNTING CHILDREN PROJECT

What is Stunting?

Stunting is the inability of children to reach their potential height for their age.

More than just affecting height, stunting is a serious manifestation of malnutrition. It adversely impacts the health, education and productivity of children, with serious social and economic costs for the country.

Malaysia’s Child Stunting Worse Than Palestinian Territories and Zimbabwe

Two out of 10 Malaysian children below five are stunted, far worse than the 7 per cent prevalence in conflict-ridden West Bank and Gaza.

Help us to find any stunted kids around you.

Your help may provide a better future for them. We really appreciate IT.

WHO WE ARE

We are a team of UTM researchers from different background who  collaborate together for the sake of our future generation 

A report from UNICEF about stunting rate in Malaysia really triggered us to do something about this issue. This effort was started in Dec 2017 which lead by Professor Dr. Ida Idayu from Faculty of Engineering who is expert in food and biomaterial engineering.

This effort is also joined by a few nutritionist, social science experts, computer science experts and few NGOs who passionately work together to produce an impactful solution. 

WHAT WE DO

01.

— Research

We investigate nutritional level status and socio-economic impact on children’s healthy food intake.

02.

— Formulate

We provide the best formulation To develop a high-energy nutrient-dense (HEN-D) meal as supplementary functional food (SFF) that is specially designed to provide energy and boost the development of brain and growth by focusing on the children living in urban area.

03.

— Implement

We distribute the supplement to the children living in urban area and monitor the growth development and impact on the children.

Join us a partner and volunteer for this project.
