Hunt on for malnourished

A new campaign is being launched to identify residents across central Victoria who may be at risk of malnutrition but aren't aware of it.

It's estimated some 10 to 30 percent of Australians are affected by malnutrition, however many more could be at risk because of a lack of awareness around the signs and symptoms.

Nutritionist  Jaime Rose Chambers says they're on the lookout for what's being described as the "missing malnourished".
