Under-nutrition and its association with psychosocial and academic performance in pre-school children in Asembo, Siaya County, Kenya
      Terry Komo, Daniel Mokaya, Caroline Musita
Abstract: Nearly half of all deaths in children under 5 are attributable to under-nutrition. This translates into the unnecessary loss of about three million lives a year. Under nutrition puts children at risk of dying from common infections, increases the frequency and severity of such infections, and contributes to delayed recovery. Under-nutrition has been associated to poor cognitive development, poor academic performance and adversely affects social skills in children.
