How to use malnourishment in a sentence?

  1. Rob Ford:

    The problem with these sorts of stories is they happen incrementally, one of the very tragic things about these stories is that in order for the public to really pay attention to them, something really dramatic has to happen. Unfortunately, that might be an overworked lorry driver crashing into a family car or children falling ill through malnourishment.

  2. Paidamoyo Madimutsa:
