Greetings, thank you for your consideration. I am humbled to participate in this discussion. Firstly, I would like to appreciate your efforts in structuring a well grammatically comprehension with good language that enables any reader to understand easily. Your post gives a reader or examiner a quick insight and picture of how Malaysia is suffering from malnutrition. Such focus on the topic is essential to motivate the reader to research more on the issue and present ideas, thus providing a mutual ground for diverse decision-making in solving global problems. I will add a few points regarding your post.
Malaysia is a country with diverse people from all over the world. Therefore, there is room for consuming different traditional foods (Muda et al., 2019). The problem is not lack of food but actually what the people in Malaysia consume as nutritious food. The country constitutes almost 80% of the rural population. This called upon the national interventions, such as post-nutritional programs that focused on nutritional education, especially in schools and communities back in the 1960s. Despite the slight progress, the nation still has a long way to ensure that malnourished children and women are educated instantly through evidence-based interventions.
Public health has contributed to ensuring that the malnutrition problem is controlled through nutrition programs in schools and community sectors. Public health has focused on socioeconomic factors like healthcare, environmental exposure, and human behaviors in reducing malnutrition problems. In Malaysia, the main focus is to reduce health problems such as obesity and chronic illnesses like heart problems resulting from malnutrition. Therefore, public health has been mandated to educate and provide nutritional foods to various schools in Malaysia and other low-income countries to curb the situation (Shahar et al., 2019). Technology advancement has contributed to human behaviors such as consuming fast foods, unlike making nutritious foods. Therefore, public health has managed to create awareness in training the communities on healthy farm produce that reduces health problems and increases life expectancy.
