National Nutrition week is an annual event, celebrated from 1st September to 7th September. Every year, the health department announces a theme for the program, under which different awareness sessions are conducted. This year the theme was “Better nutrition – key to development”.
The campaign was first started by the central government way back in 1982 to encourage good health by educating people about nutrition. Malnutrition posed a major hurdle to the country’s development. Despite earnest efforts from the government and civil society, the country is still to go a long way to eradicate malnutrition.
