Indian Children Dying as Food Aid Fails Them

Dec. 19 (Bloomberg) -- India’s only program to nourish as many as 160 million children under six has failed those from Kaushambhi district in the state of Uttar Pradesh, and tens of millions of others around the country. The billions that India budgets for children, which works out to 4.4 cents for each per day, have barely dented one of the world’s highest rates of child malnourishment. Bloomberg's Paul Gordon and Mehul Srivastava report on the plight of young children in the district. (Source: Bloomberg)
