Healthy children are healthy adults of tomorrow. Healthy eating patterns in childhood and adolescence promote optimal childhood health, growth and intellectual development, prevent immediate health problems like iron deficiency anaemia, obesity, eating disorder, and dental caries as well as long term health problems, such as coronary heart disease, metabolic disorders etc.
In today’s world there is a dichotomy as far child nutrition is concerned. On one hand we encounter the malnutrition and on the other side urban society is struggled with child obesity. Both these are detrimental for the generations to come. In today’s urban society nuclear families, working parents, lonely children (single child), affluent families, performance pressure / peer pressure / high expectations are all contributing factors in one way or the other.
This would include a comprehensive analysis of the School Kitchen, nutritional analysis of the menu served to the children, nutritional need assessment of every child, conduct nutritional awareness program to the parents, children, and school staff. This program summarizes strategies most likely to be effective in promoting healthy eating among school-age youths and provides nutrition education guidelines for a comprehensive school health program.
Every child is unique and hence their nutritional needs. Our approach is to understand the need and devise the intervention accordingly.
