'Slow violence' of child malnutrition
The Children's Institute at the University of Cape Town has released the 2020 Child Gauge report.
The gauge monitors the situation of children in the country.
The theme focused on food and nutrition security for children, and highlighted some frightening statistics.
To take us through some of the numbers and key takeaways from the report we were joined by our producer, Nic Andersen.
Dr. Chantell Witten also joined us via Skype. She is the co-author of the 2020 child gauge, and an expert in child nutrition.
