Maternal and child malnutrition in low-income and middle-income countries encompasses both undernutrition and a growing problem with overweight and obesity. Low body-mass index, indicative of maternal undernutrition, has declined somewhat in the past two decades but continues to be prevalent in Asia and Africa. Prevalence of maternal overweight has had a steady increase since 1980 and exceeds that of underweight in all regions. Prevalence of stunting of linear growth of children younger than 5… 
Revisiting maternal and child undernutrition in low-income and middle-income countries: variable progress towards an unfinished agenda
TLDR
Despite little progress in some areas, maternal and child undernutrition remains a major global health concern, particularly as improvements since 2000 might be offset by the COVID-19 pandemic.
Maternal Malnutrition in Low-Income and Middle-Income Countries: A Closer Look at the Indian Scenario
Optimal nutrition in mothers is not only crucial for their own health but also for the health of future generations. Maternal undernutrition is a serious health issue which can lead to adverse
Child Malnutrition in Low-Income and Middle-Income Countries: Insights from India
Nutritional influences during early life can have a lasting impact on the growth, health and cognitive and social development of an individual. Undernutrition during this phase can lead to increased
The double burden of undernutrition and excess body weight in Mexico.
TLDR
Although some prevalences of double burden were lower than expected, assuming independent distributions of the 2 conditions, the coexistence of stunting, overweight or obesity, and anemia at the national, household, and intraindividual levels in Mexico calls for policies and programs to prevent the 3 conditions.
Childhood Dual Burden of Under- and Overnutrition in Low- and Middle-inCome Countries: A Critical Review
TLDR
The dual burden of malnutrition poses a threat to children's health in low- and middle-income countries and must remain committed to reducing undernutrition while simultaneously preventing over-nutrition through integrated child health programs that incorporate prevention of infection, diet quality, and physical activity.
Epidemiology of Malnutrition:Maternal and Child Malnutrition
TLDR
Definition, prevalence, causes and challenges associated with reducing malnutrition (undernutrition) in children, pregnant women and the elderly will be covered briefly in this review.
The double burden of chronic malnutrition and overweight and obesity in Ecuadorian mothers and children, 1986–2012
TLDR
The prevalence of chronic malnutrition in children <5 decreased at different rates among Ecuadorians who differ in terms of residence, socioeconomic status, and mothers’ level of education, while overweight and obesity increased dramatically in the same period.
Child and adolescent obesity: part of a bigger picture
TLDR
Nutrition policies to tackle child obesity need to promote healthy growth and household nutrition security and protect children from inducements to be inactive or to overconsume foods of poor nutritional quality.
Double burden of maternal and child malnutrition and socioeconomic status in urban Sri Lanka
TLDR
Socioeconomic inequality combined with maternal nutritional status affected child malnutrition and the underlying circumstances within households should be considered to improve child malnutrition.
Promoting short‐term and long‐term health: keep the growth track!
TLDR
This issue of Acta Paediatrica includes two papers that provide different perspectives on child growth and its consequences, including whether deviations in body mass index in Swedish children aged 7– 19 years had an impact on their final height, and the auxology hidden in 19th and early 20th-century medical journals on German library shelves.

Risk of childhood undernutrition related to small-for-gestational age and preterm birth in low- and middle-income countries.
TLDR
It is estimated that childhood undernutrition may have its origins in the foetal period, suggesting a need to intervene early, ideally during pregnancy, with interventions known to reduce FGR and preterm birth.

TLDR
The high mortality and disease burden resulting from these nutrition-related factors make a compelling case for the urgent implementation of interventions to reduce their occurrence or ameliorate their consequences.

TLDR
It is concluded that damage suffered in early life leads to permanent impairment, and might also affect future generations, as undernutrition is associated with lower human capital and its prevention will probably bring about important health, educational, and economic benefits.

TLDR
To eliminate stunting in the longer term, existing interventions that were designed to improve nutrition and prevent related disease could reduce stunting at 36 months by 36%; mortality between birth and 36 monthsBy about 25%; and disability-adjusted life-years associated with stunting, severe wasting, intrauterine growth restriction, and micronutrient deficiencies by about 25%.
