Just as a damaged clay pot cannot be corrected after it is already set, the health of a child who has been a victim of malnutrition in its early stages of life cannot be fixed.

The purpose of this video is to create awareness about the symptoms and alarming consequences of malnutrition. It addresses the importance of balanced nutrition and health.

It is intended for the community at large.

The Story:

A father is giving lessons in pottery making to his son and together they have achieved in making a perfect clay pot. Suddenly the father notices among a lot of pots that are drying there is one dented pot. He picks it up and says look this one is dented, we will make it again.

The little boy smiles at his father and says we can't fix it again it is already baked. But we can try again says the father and the boy says remember you had once taught me that once a pot is ready we cannot fix the dent. The father lovingly hugs his son and says "You have learnt very well my child, I am proud of you."

Just as a damaged clay pot cannot be corrected after it is already set, the health of a child who has been a victim of malnutrition in its early stages of life cannot be fixed.


Malnutrition is lack of right nutrition. A child is specially most prone to the dangers of malnutrition from the time of its conception till two years of its age which is very important period for the overall growth. 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.
