The greatest myths surrounding malnutrition are that it is a problem of the poor and impacts only women and children living in rural parts of the country, Union minister Smriti Irani on Monday said.

Speaking on an event on tackling malnutrition, she said it has been found that people do not realize that locally available food is sufficient to take care of their nutritional needs in many cases.
