Hidden hunger can be defined as a micronutrient deficiency, particularly in iodine, iron, zinc and vitamin A (Harding et al., 2017). Approximately ⅓ of the population suffers from a form of malnutrition (Amoroso, 2018), hidden hunger commonly overlaps with other dietary diseases, such as obesity. While hidden hunger exists everywhere, the worst affected areas are rural and the vast majority of cases are in Africa.
