Women pledge that when her daughter in law is expecting they will take care of her full comfort, give her iodine salt and iron folic acid tablets and provide her with full nutritious food.
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 woman pledges that when her daughter in law is expecting she will take care of her full comfort. A second woman pledges that she will give her iodine salt and iron folic acid tablets. A third woman pledges that she'll provide full nutritious food to her expectant daughter in law. I'll make sure she takes green leafy vegetables, pulses, eggs, milk and fruits in good quantities.
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!
