Editorial: Post-COVID-19 Nutritional Concerns or Challenges among Young Children

Before the Coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) outbreak and its unprecedented impact, the State of the World’s Children 2019, UNICEF, reported that 69% of the total death in childhood (<5 years) was caused by malnutrition. India is home to nearly half of the world’s “wastedâ€Â (low weight for height ratio) children. COVID-19 among children has been found to be associated with several gastrointestinal symptoms, including diarrhoea, vomiting, abdominal cramps, loss or change in sense of smell or taste, loss of appetite or poor appetite and/or poor feeding. The loss of appetite and poor feeding can, in turn, affect the nutritional status of children and can lead to long-term consequences.
