The World Health Organization approved National Center for Health Statistics (NCSH) standards of measuring malnutrition is used to compare the nutritional status of the rural children. Three types of malnutrition is measured they are, Weight for Age (Underweight), Height for Age (Stunting) and Height for Weight (Wasting).
