Just as a dead plant can not revive into a lush tree and grow normally without proper care and nourishment like soil, water, fresh air and sunshine so too a child cannot develop into a healthy adult without proper care and nutrition.

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 gardener is teaching his daughter how to plant trees. He tells her to put the soil around the plant first and then water the plant.

He then notices a dead plant and picks it up and says we will water it now and it will grow again and soon flowers will bloom in it.

The daughter chides her father by reminding him what he had taught her before that once a plant is dead, no amount of of manure or water can help it grow again. The father laughs and says "My child you have grown up and grown clever too."

Just as a dead plant can not revive into a lush tree and grow normally without proper care and nourishment like soil, water, fresh air and sunshine so too a child cannot develop into a healthy adult without proper care and nutrition.


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.
