Bangladesh, the nutritional status of the whole population is lagging behind. More than 60% of women of child bearing age are suffering from chronic malnutrition as revealed by low BMI; and about 70% of them have IDD and nutritional anemia. On the other hand, more than 50 % of childhood mortality is directly or indirectly linked to malnutrition. In addition, malnutrition is also associated with increased risk of morbidity, lower learning potential and lower productivity in adulthood. Although, over the last decades, the IMR and the MMR are declining, the figure is still quiet high. The biggest challenges to achieve the desired goals of MDGs 4 & 5 are very high neonatal mortality rate which itself is contributed by, among other factors, low birth weight. The birth weight of the newborn is largely dependant on the maternal nutritional status.
