UNDER THE AUSPICES OF SAGE FOUNDATION SCHOOL NUTRITION INTERVENTION PROGRAM INVESTING IN THE FUTURE
In India, an estimated 131 million women of reproductive age (52 percent of this population) and 85 million children under age 4 (74 percent) are anemic. Combining these estimates with those for schoolchildren and adolescents, there are at least 360 million anemic individuals in India. According to Sanghvi, 1996, Iron Deficiency costs India about 5 % of its gross national product annually from losses of lives, resources, and productivity.
How do we combat this severe & silent public health problem?
How do we combat physical and mental developmental problems, including learning deficits in children?
How do we improve the child’s academic & physical performance?
Therefore the central aim of this SCHOOL NUTRITION INTERVENTION PROGRAM is to highlight the need for every pre- school and school in evaluating and imparting nutrition education to parents with a view to communicate behavioral change. Such change will have a long-term effect as healthy eating habits, which can be inculcated in children from the beginning. This will definitely reflect in an improvement in their physical and mental performance and will translate to become an economic benefit rather than an economic loss to themselves and the nation.
