Malnutrition is becoming a huge Problem for Nepal

Nepal is flooded with problems and malnutrition is slowly becoming one of the biggest problems for the country. Nepal has one of highest rates of malnutrition in the world. Poverty is the root cause of this problem but political infighting among the major parties is an important factor too.
The Himalayan Times reported that nearly one third of the people in the country are living under poverty line and 41% people cannot eat enough food required to maintain 2,144 calories per day.
Right now, a very bitter power struggle is going on in the country and no body knows when this conflict will finish. There is some fear that the country can again head to chaos and anarchy as the major leaders are finding it impossible to get a consensus about anything.
