Malnutrition forfeits eating a diet with nutrients that are either not sufficient for the body and cause health problems. It involves calories, starches, proteins, vitamins, or reserves. These inadequate nutrients are called under nutrition or malnutrition, while over-nutrition is called over-nutrition. Extreme malnutrition, referred to as starvation, has symptoms such as a thin body, short height, very low energy levels and swollen legs and abdomen. Apart from marasmus and kwashiorkor, iodine, iron, vitamin A and zinc deficiencies are the main signs of malnutrition in developing countries.
