Abstract : Globally, there is deep concern about nutrition and health situation of children in the age group under five year. Malnutrition is found to be one of the leading problems in developing nations and is one of the prominent cause of infant mortality and morbidity. It also reflects the socioeconomic well-being of the country. However, literature is not unanimous in terms of definition, causes and methodology used in understanding malnutrition. Through an extant review of literature, this study aims to do a systematic inquiry on characteristics, causes and methodologies to deal with malnutrition in children under age of five. This paper is an attempt to identify these features and techniques in explaining malnutrition and is making a case for usage of artificial intelligence in identifying the causes of malnutrition.
