of children’s mortality and data of mass of body during birth were gathered from

The prevalence of short boys increased in 7.8% and girl’s in 10.9%.The number of
children with good physical development decreased. Adequate food is certainly very
important for normal growth of a young children and fetus.
Among the vulnerable group the average body mass of newborns with low weight(2,5 kg and lower) have increased. Meanwhile the number of newborns with good physical growth has decreased. The incidence of low birth weigh is clear marker of this process.
Among the cases of mortality the death rate of children 4 years old and younger has increased, of which perhaps can be assumed to be associated with malnutrition.
