Despite the fact that in the last years it has been tried to promote the children health, these actions help to decrease child's death and feeding recovery in these years but still the lack of protein and energy is one of our main difficulties in the country. Weight loss and shortness because of unsuitable feeding schedule cause the loss in children growth before entering to primary school.
