IMFeD Malaysia was launched on March 26, 2012 by the Malaysian Paediatric Association (MPA). The first 5 years (2012-2017) focused on adapting, localising and introducing a system to identify and manage feeding difficulties. In the following 5 years (2018-2023), the scope expanded to include screening and intervention for growth faltering related to feeding and nutrition issues.

In Phase 3 of the programme (2023-2027), IMFeD aims to reach out to as many children possible by expanding programme scope from young children to adolescents and to collaborate with other stakeholder groups who are willing to join us in the fight against stunting.

To date, IMFeD Malaysia is known publicly as IMFeD for Growth.
