It is a fatal cycle where the problem starts even before pregnancy where malnourished woman and girls are more likely to give birth to unhealthy children. Due to their weak immune system, children who are malnourished are more likely to be infected with life threatening diseases as well as physical and cognitive impairments. This in turn puts a limitation on their ability to excel at school and diminishes their ability to be self-sufficient as adults. It is a malicious cycle that put a limit on families, communities, and countries to raise themselves out of poverty.
