- Almost 1/3rd of the world's malnourished children are in India.
- Nearly 40% of Indian children are undernourished.
- Close to 9.2 Lakh children in India are severely malnourished
- Less than 10% receive an adequate diet.
Most of the children that need help are spread out in small clusters across hard to reach remote locations. The problem is further accentuated by Covid-19 restrictions, further reducing their access to health and nutrition services.
It's time to TAKE ACTION!
The ANNADA POSHAN POTLI is an initiative to provide nutritious, energy-dense, fun and tasty meals for children at risk of malnutrition.
Each Poshan potli provides:
- Two meals a day for 1 month
- A variety of fun and tasty snacks
- A booklet on nutrition, hygiene and Covid safety guidelines
- A colouring book & crayons
Power of Poshan - provides almost 50% of a child's daily RDA - Recommended Dietary Allowance.
The meals include
- Micronutrient fortified laddus: sattu-based laddu everyday fortified with minerals & vitamins.
- Hot cooked meals every day such as a multi-grain millet Khichdi, soya khichdi or dal khichdi.
- A wide variety of fun and tasty, energy-dense snacks to increase the child's daily nutrition intake, such as Millet cookies, Peanut chikkis, rajgira laddus, iron-rich jaggery powder, glucose biscuits, and much more.
Team ANNADA has identified thousands of such children at risk of malnutrition with the help of govt. & NGO partners. The ANNADA Poshan potlis will be provided to these children at their homes in urban and primarily rural areas.
End to End Food Safety
