Abstract:   (482 Views)
Measures adopted to decrease spread of COVID-19 have likely included worsening effects on the existing food crisis, especially in low and middle-income countries. This increases concerns on the potential long-term effects on children nutrition and wellbeing. Without appropriate intervention programs, it could result in increases in children malnutrition, hidden hunger and mortality. The aims of this editorial manuscript were to provide available information on this topic and discuss necessities to target early interventions appropriately for better addressing the situation as consequences can be unpredictable if not appropriately addressed.
