    Bottom line.

    Most Nigerians are poor and therefore have little to eat. Therefore, they are physically malnourished.

    On the other hand, a good number of well-to-do Nigerians eat a lot of Nigerian food with plenty of carbohydrates and they believe they are eating well.

    Unfortunately, they are not eating a balanced diet. And so they are technically malnourished.
