dc.description.abstractAlthough Sri Lanka performs well in most health indicators, Child nutrition is still a major problem. Despite countless initiatives to alleviate malnutrition, child nutrition levels have not improved much over the years. It remains a persistent obstacle in improving the country's overall socio-economic indicators. Despite several measures taken by the successive governments to improve the nutritional status, including a National Nutrition Policy (NNP) initiated in 2010, there is no consistent improvement to be seen in the nutritional status of under five year old children during 2006-2016. Also, the prevalence of low birth weight has not reduced.
