Vietnamese 3 centimeters taller on average over the last 10 years

The National Nutrition Census 2020, released by the Ministry of Health at a conference Wednesday, stated the average height for men rose to 168.1 centimeters and women, 156.2 centimeters.

In Southeast Asia, Vietnamese are only shorter than people in Singapore, Malaysia and Thailand. The study measured the height of people born in the 2000s, who reached adulthood in 2020 and benefited from a thriving economy with many healthcare programs. The rate of stunted children under five years old decreased to 19.6 percent, considered a low level according to World Health Organization classification, it found.

As reported by VNE, in 2018 the Vietnamese government launched a nation-wide Zero Hunger program with the goal of lowering malnutrition rates and stunted growth through improved nutrition and sustainable food production. Data collected since the late 1990s shows the proportion of those undernourished in Vietnam dropped from 19.8 percent to 6.4 percent, wasting in children slipped from 9 percent to 5.8 percent while the nation’s child stunting rate has been cut from 42.9 percent to 23.8 percent between 2002 and 2019, according to the 2020 Global Hunger Index.

The government launched another program in 2013 aimed at improving the nutrition and physical health of its citizens, which could increase the average height of the population. The $285 million project targets that by 2030 the average height of women and men would have increased to 157.5 centimeters and 168.5 centimeters.

The U.S.’s World Population Review in September 2019 ranked Vietnamese the fourth shortest people in the world, with an average height of 162.1 centimeters, taller only than Indonesians, Filipinos and Bolivians.

Europeans are the world’s tallest people, occuppying the top 10 list. People in the Netherlands are 183.8 cm tall, followed by Montenegro (183.2 cm), Denmark (182.6 cm) and Norway (182.4 cm).

The average Vietnamese man is 162.1 cm tall and the average woman 152.2 cm, far shorter than their Asian peers like Chinese, Singaporeans, Japanese, and South Koreans.

 

Are Vietnamese the shortest height in Asia?

Nutrition plays major part of growing body height. Unfortunately, Vietnam was constantly under many wars for 140 years (since 1850) and only had chance to develop in peace since 1990. We had nothing to eat to sustain in hard conditions, only consumed grass and bugs in jungles to fight the enemies.

New generation of Vietnam get much improvement. Boys at age 15 today higher than 175cm. You can see them in national football team (average high of player is above 180cm) Their strengths and stamina now can compete with any ASIA competitors.

Vietnamese are world’s fourth shortest people

The average height of Vietnamese people is far shorter than their Asian peers.

With an average height of 162.1 centimeters (cm) for men and 152.2cm for women, Vietnamese are the fourth shortest people in the world, local media quoted a survey by the World Population Review as saying. The average height of Vietnamese people is far shorter than their Asian peers. The respective averages are 170.7cm and 157.4cm for South Korean men and women, 169cm and 158cm for Chinese and 172cm and 158cm for Japanese. Cambodians are taller than Vietnamese, with an average male height of 162.5cm.

Vietnamese people are only taller than Indonesians (158 cm), Filipinos (161.9 cm), and Bolivians (160 cm). According to the World Population Review, the tallest people in the world are the Dutch (183.8 cm), followed by the Montenegrins (183.2 cm), the Danes (182.6 cm) and the Norwegians (182.4 cm). According to a UNICEF report, Vietnam also has the highest rate of stunting in Southeast Asia with a rate of 23.8% among children under five years old. This is attributed to a number of reasons, including lack of nutrition in early childhood.

The Vietnamese government launched a program in 2013 which was aimed at improving the nutrition and physical health of its citizens, which could increase the average height of the population. The US$285 million project targets that by 2030 the average heights of women and men will increase to 157.5 cm and 168.5 cm. Government studies show that about 25% of Vietnamese children under five years old are on average 10 centimeter shorter than their Asian peers due to undernourishment, said Associate Professor Le Bach Mai, former deputy head of the National Institute of Nutrition. However, the average height has risen only between 1cm and 1.5cm over the past 10 years due mainly to poor diet, said Mai.

The typical Vietnamese diet is heavy in protein but lacks calcium. Traditional meals in Vietnam only meet 60% of recommended calcium requirements for school-aged children. In addition, the consumption of salt or sodium is too high, according to the health expert, with the average person consuming 15 mg per day or about three times more sodium than the necessary amount. A high level salt intake increases the amount of calcium discharged in urine. Associate Professor Mai added that minerals such as vitamins A and D were also pivotal in determining height, but the daily diet of Vietnamese people only meets about 10% of the amount needed.

Hanoi (VNA) –  The average height of Vietnamese youths has shown remarkable improvements, reaching 168.1cm for 18-year-old males in 2020, up 3.7 cm from 2020, and 156.2cm for 18-year-old females, up from 154.8cm, according to the National General Nutrition Survey for 2019-2020, which was released by the Health Ministry’s National Institute of Nutrition (NIN) on April 15.

Conducted every 10 years, the survey was a joint effort between the NIN and the Ministry of Planning and Investment’s General Statistics Office, with support from many international organisations. Deputy Health Minister Do Xuan Tuyen said the survey is the largest of its kind on a nationwide scale and involved 22,400 households in 25 cities and provinces representing six ecological areas. It collected anthropometrical data as well as those on micro-nutrients, individual food portions, food security, and food hygiene and safety.

He added that the survey reveals the overall landscape of nutritional intake in Vietnam, progress made over the past decade, and the challenges in the time to come.

Malnutrition is still too common around the country, particularly in disadvantaged and ethnic minority areas. Excessive weight and obesity are rising in both urban and rural areas and among people of different ages, leading to an uncontrollable rise in non-communicable diseases relating to diet. Besides, there remain problems in quality and safety of food consumed by people in daily life.

Tuyen said the survey is significant in assessing goals in the national nutrition strategy for the 2011-2020 period and in providing scientific evidence to serve the drafting of national nutrition strategies in subsequent periods. The prevalence of excessive weight and obesity rose from 8.5 percent in 2010 to 19 percent in 2020, including 26.8 percent in urban areas, 18.3 percent in rural areas, and 6.9 percent in mountainous areas.

The use of micro-nutrients and the rate of breastfeeding in the first six months of a new-born’s life improved significantly, from 19.6 percent in 2010 to 45.4 percent in 2020. The figure was 55.7 percent in urban areas, 40.3 percent in rural areas, and 42.7 percent in mountainous areas.

Up to 35.8 percent of respondents possessed good knowledge on food safety, while 55.6 percent had average knowledge and 8 percent low knowledge. The rate of people accessing official information on food safety has doubled since the previous survey in 2010. Vietnamese also consumes more vegetable and fruits, averaging 231 grams and 140.7 grams  per person a day respectively compared to 190.4 grams and 60.9 grams in 2010. However, the consumption only reached 66.4-77.4 percent of the recommended amount. The daily consumption of meat rose rapidly to 136.4 grams per person from 84.0 grammes 10 years ago, while consumption of rice decreased.
