Goa along with Kerala has the lowest percentage of stunted children

Goa: Goa along with Kerala, has the lowest percentage 20% of stunted  children in the country. However, the state needs to do more in utilising funds under the Central government’s Poshan Abhiyan as Goa and Karnataka are two states with zero utilisation of funds, states a report compiled in March this year by two researchers following a review of the programmes by the Union ministry women and child development.

“The states of Bihar, Madhya Pradesh, Rajasthan and Uttar Pradesh had high rates of stunting prevalence ranging from 37 to 42 per cent; the lowest rates were recorded in Goa,” researchers Kriti Kapur and Shoba Suri have written in their report for the Observer Research Foundation ‘Towards a Malnutrition-Free India: Best Practices and Innovations from Poshan Abhiyaan’.
