    UNICEF says 2.3 million under-16s in Spain at risk of malnutrition

    Catalan Ombudsman (Síndic de Greuges) revealed that in rich Catalonia 28% of children suffer malnutrition.

    The continuing fall in household income in Spain is causing many families to cut down on basic necessities such as food and it is estimated that a quarter of under-16, or 2.3 million are at risk of malnutrition, according to a recent statement by Gabriel González-Bueno, responsible for Child Policies at UNICEF in Spain.
