India has made incredible progress in combating malnutrition, but there is still much to be done. After the pandemic, malnutrition in children across the country has worsened due to the lack of availability of food. In this dual battle against malnutrition and the pandemic, many governmental and non-government organizations have taken serious steps in an effort to tackle these issues. Nourishing Schools Foundation is actively working with many partners across the country to help children understand and tackle malnutrition. Through making parents, teachers and children aware of their roles in the fight against malnutrition, we believe a happy and healthy future lies ahead.
