Stunting in Filipino Adolescents 

Did you know that in the Philippines, 26.8% of adolescents are stunted? More than half have protein inadequacy and more than 75% have micronutrient inadequacy*. 

Adolescence is the time when the final major growth spurt occurs. Approximately 15-20% of adult height and 45% of adult bone mass are achieved during adolescence^. 

During this period, they experience a period of rapid growth, where up to 2x key nutrients are required, compared to before puberty.
