      DMND Senevirathna, Prof Guwani Liyanage
Abstract: Proper nutrition is crucial for everyone, but it plays a crucial role in childhood as nutrition is directly linked with all aspects of their growth and development. Therefore, all physical, cognitive and psychological capabilities as adults will be determined by the fetal and childhood nutrition. Disabled children, specifically, are in need of higher need of proper nutrition compared to non-disabled children. Malnutrition problems in disabled child will make he/ she highly vulnerable to further morbidities imposing further suffering of the affected child. Consequently, not only the child he/ herself but also the family and the whole community will suffer both emotionally and financially (Neyestani et al., 2010).
