In the Indonesian capital Jakarta, almost 20 percent of children under 5 are acutely malnourished, while another 10% are overweight.

Many families do not have access to a kitchen. So they rely upon street food that is often unhygienic and does not contain necessary nutrients for child development.

The International NGO Mercy Corps is trying to provide families with healthier low-cost alternatives.

As Michelle Rimmer reports this includes selling nutrient-rich food for primary school children.
