In the entire world there are around 400 million children affected by malnutrition.

Out of those 400 million children affected by malnutrition around 3.1 million of those malnourished child die as a result of malnutrition.

Most of those malnourished children are in other countries other than the USA such as those third world countries including India, China, Africa etc.

There are several thousands of children in the USA who do not get enough to eat either and are malnourished.

It's sad when we have a lot of food that goes to waste and actually goes to the trash when kids and even adults, teens, babies etc are malnourished.
