According to the survey on Nutrition Intake of Grassroot Children which published in 2018, the intake of meat of 87% grassroot students did not meet the standard of Centre for Health Protection. Meanwhile, 77% of their grains and vegetables intake are not up to standard as well. These might lead to malnutrition. With the problems like COVID 19, rising of food prices and unemployment, most of the underprivileged families reduce their spending on food. Hence, their children are very likely to suffer nutrition insufficiency which affect their growth and development.
