Soccer star David Beckham is attempting to combat child malnutrition. Beckham will be meeting with British Prime Minister David Cameron to discuss the issue and ways to fix the growing problem of children not getting a balanced diet. His biggest issue with children not getting a balanced diet is the issue of stunting.

“Stunting –when children don’t get the right nutrients in the first 1,000 days of life– is the hidden crisis stopping millions of children around the world reaching their potential. It’s irreversible. It means children get trapped in lives of poverty,” said Beckham.

Beckham, a Goodwill Ambassador for the United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF), will be delivering a letter to the British Prime Minister. The letter is signed by some famous names including Claudia Schiffer, Whoopi Goldberg, and Robbie Williams who are all seeking to end child hunger and malnutrition.

The letter is being hand delivered to the Prime Minister ahead of the 2012 Olympic games and before Downing Street hosts a hunger summit. The hunger summit will focus on combating hunger, malnutrition and the global food shortage issue. It is set to take place at Downing Street in London on August 12.

Beckham said, “During the coming weeks all eyes will be on London for the greatest show on earth. As a UNICEF Ambassador, I am asking the Prime Minister to use the global spotlight on our nation to make children around the world the real winners of these Games.”

The soccer star was appointed as a Goodwill Ambassador for UNICEF in 2005. But he has been an advocate and voice for the children’s non-profit since 1999. His work focuses around UNICEF’s sports for development programme.
