Psychological guidance can help mothers reduce child malnutrition in developing countries

If children are not hungry, why are they malnourished. Economic growth does not seem to have a great impact on reducing child malnutrition and neither does simply an expansion of state services, for example, in India. Poor mothers often have to make a lot of choices. What should they buy. How much they need to save. How much to invest. This puts a lot of pressure on them to feed a healthy, nutritious and economical diet for their children. They need to be guided on how to make the best choices.
