A new campaign is being launched to identify residents on the Eyre Peninsula who may be at risk of malnutrition but aren't aware of it.

It's estimated some 10 to 30% 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 and Accredited Practising Dietician, Jaime Rose Chambers says they're on the lookout for what's being described as the "missing malnourished".
