Childhood stunting

By Samuel Burke & Mick Krever, CNN

Millions of children around the world are threatened with death, lowered I.Q. and deformities by a life-altering condition - one that can be avoided simply by eating enough nutrients.  It's called "stunting."

The vitamins and the nutrients that a child receives in the first two years of life will literally impact that child's entire future.

Stunting threatens 180 million children below the age of five all over the world.

To discuss this phenomenon CNN's  Christiane Amanpour was joined by the head of UNICEF, Anthony Lake, as well as Angelique Kidjo. She is a Grammy award-winning singer and songwriter, as well as UNICEF goodwill ambassador. She recently traveled to Kenya, where more than two million children suffer from stunting.

CNN’s Juliet Fuisz produced this piece for television.
