  2. 2. “Malnutrition is NOT Hunger” 1.Malnutrition in children is not affected by food intake alone,it is also influenced by access to health services,quality of care for the child & pregnant mother as well as good hygiene practices.Girls are more at risk of malnutrition than boys because of their lower social status. FAST FACTS 1.Malnutrition is more common in india than in Sub-saharan Africa 2.One in every three Malnourished children in the world lives in India 3.India is home to 23 crore hungry people. 4. 75% of adolscent mothers in India put only 5kgs during pregnancy compared to the worldwide average of 10kg due to malnourishment
  3. 3. DAMAGE DUE NEGLIGENCE • The data was accessed by hindustan times through RTI and as per calculations,the grains damaged mostly during handling & storage,could fed atleast 25000 people per year. • RTI reply shows that already grains of ₹1796 crores and the government had already admitted loss of wheat of ₹5 crores and rice worth ₹40 crores in the current year • Our government estimates the death of children due to malnutrition at a minimum of 3000 everyday ………….while heaps of food grain lie rotting in the field
  4. 4. CAUSES Malnutrition 1. 5 out of 7 children living below Poverty line are malnourished 2. The main cause of malnutrition in Rural as well as Urban area is Unbalanced diet Poverty Unbalanced diet
  5. 5. Where we are loosing Nutrition is one of the core pillars of human development. Despite an impressive economic growth and improvement in health facilities since independence, India has failed to address the issue of malnutrition. Malnutrition has gradually emerged as India’s salient emergency. Malnourished population impedes the social and economic progress of a nation. Productivity losses to a malnourished individual are estimated to be more than 10% of his/her lifetime earnings
  6. 6. The REAL problem is 1.The crisis of “hidden hunger” is invisible to some policymakers,which means that national nutritional programs are often underfunded 2. Achieving improved nutrition on a broad scale requires further research to understand the factors that influence the nutritional status of women as well as the conditions that affect fetal growth and the growth and development of young children. Also needed are better ways to reach target populations, better tools to identify nutrient deficiencies and the impact of nutrition interventions, and increased funding and delivery capacity
  7. 7. “WE should initiate to SAVE US” OUR solution is……. 1.OPTIMIZING NUTRITION OUTCOMES FROM INVESTMENTS IN AGRICULTURE 2. We are particularly interested in new approaches to improving nutrition for women before and during pregnancy and for children from birth to age 2—when nutrition is most critical to growth and development and lifelong health. This includes new approaches to ensuring immediate and exclusive breastfeeding for the first 6 months of a child’s life, followed by a transition to healthy complementary feeding from 6 to 24 months of age.
  8. 8. Area of focus 1.Improving Breastfeeding Practices 2.Addressing Micronutrient Deficiencies 3.Advocating for Better Nutrition Funding and Policies 4.Promoting Healthy Growth # A women’s self-help group in a remote region of Rajasthan, India, produces fortified foods for distribution to mothers and young children. Nutritional intake can be significantly improved by fortifying local foods with micronutrients and enhancing the nutritional quality of staple crops through selective breeding. Government should work with a diverse range of public- and private-sector partners to increase access to fortified and biofortified foods among vulnerable populations. This work has already improved access to micronutrients for hundreds of millions of people in other countries. Efforts have included development of a sweet potato variety that is rich in vitamin A—the first biofortified food widely and commercially available in eastern and southern Africa 5. Advocating for Better Nutrition Funding and Policies
