The purpose of this video is to encourage the community to take action to prevent malnutrition. It explains simple things one can do to prevent malnutrition.
It is intended for the community at large.
A construction worker pledges that he will take the utmost care of his wife during her pregnancy. A second man pledges that he will ensure that she eats on time and also that she gets ample rest. A third man pledges that he'll give his child home cooked, nutritious food from the seventh month onwards. And he will also make sure that his child continues to be breast fed.
The war on malnutrition has already begun. You too take a pledge to join us. And always remember these four things.
One - Correct diet for the expecting mother
Two - Mother's first milk is the best
Three - Only breast milk for the first six months
Four - After that, balance mother's milk with a nutritious diet
So, remember the four things. Say yes to all of them and say "Malnutrition, Quit India".
Malnutrition is a lack of the right nutrients in the body.
A child is specially prone to the dangers of malnutrition from the time of its conception till two years of age. This is a very important period for overall long-term growth.
Malnutrition in India
Malnutrition in children and women remains as one of the greatest challenges in India. Malnutrition remains a major threat to the survival, growth and development of children.
Today, nearly every second child in India is a victim of malnutrition.
It means they are physically and mentally weak due to which they are targets to many ailments, deformities, disabilities and allergies affecting normal growth mentally and physically. So we should jointly wage a war against malnutrition!
