Uganda is among the resource constraint countries that continue to have high levels of under nutrition, particularly among young children, adolescents, pregnant/lactating women and adults with chronic diseases. Under nutrition poses a serious threat to the vulnerable group and compromises growth development of children and quality of life of adults and contributed to illnesses and over 40 % of pediatric deaths. In 2006, over 38% of children under the age of five years were stunted, 6% wasted, and 16% underweight (UDHS 2006). The double-burden of malnutrition among the pregnant women was 12% (6% urban and 13% rural) underweight (BMI < 18.5), (Uganda Bureau of Statistics; UBOS, 2007). Likewise, the prevalence of anemia prevalence increased in 2006 to 73% in children 6-59 months of age, 49% in women of reproductive age, and 28% in 15-54 year old males (UBOS, 2007).
