Ghanaian actor, Majid Michel, is championing the fight against malnutrition.
According to a research, 35% of Ghanaians have suffered from stunted growth and 10.5 of children who are repeated in school are as a result of malnutrition.
Majid has, however, urged Ghanaians to make it a priority to collectively fight against malnutrition.
“We don’t even talk about food, we don’t talk about agriculture …all we believe is the food comes someway, and somehow wherever it comes from we have no idea all you know is you eating,” he said at a conference on food and nutrition security in Ghana in Accra to commemorate the Africa food and nutrition security day.
He further called for nutrition to be made a mainstream topic of conversation and for it to be taught in schools.
