Malnutrition affects not only the child but also the nation. Without adequate food and nutrition, a child faces the risk of undernourishment which affects his or her development and ability to grow and learn. This in turn results in lesser productivity which impacts economic growth.Biofortification is seen as a strategy for dealing with deficiencies of micronutrients in low and middle-income country like Nigeria.
