POSHAN Abhiyan (National Nutrition Mission) was launched by the Honourable Prime Minister on 8th March, 2018. The Programme strives to reduce the level of stunting, under – nutrition, low birth weight in children and anaemia in adolescent girls, pregnant women, lactating mothers as well as children.

Rashtriya Poshan Maah is being celebrated during the month of September, 2021 to further accelerate various activities under POSHAN Abhiyan and to create a Jan Andolan in the process by adhering to COVID – 19.

With an idea to support the objective of this Mission, our School had taken initiative to bring awareness and propagate the importance of healthy nutrition and ill effects of malnutrition among our students from classes VI to VIII.

To promote this significant initiative, the Science faculties of our School Ms. Heleena.S, Ms. Nalini.B and Ms. Valli Rajkumar conducted an awareness programme on Nutrition, Balanced diet, Junk food and Healthy eating habits.

The awareness session was conducted during the virtual classes. The significance of Nutrition to sustain a healthy life, the marked importance of Balanced diet in everyday intake, the essential elements of a Healthy eating plate and the noxious effects of Junk foods were explained through a presentation.

To highlight the importance of healthy food and to avoid the intake of Junk food, an interesting “Thumbs Up” activity was conducted for class VI and VII. Students were asked to show ‘Thumbs Up’ and ‘Thumbs Down’ of their favourite choice of food. Most of the students opted for healthy food. Students realized the need and the benefits of healthy food to avoid obesity, anaemia and malnutrition. E-quiz was conducted for class VIII on the importance of healthy diet.

The sessions were interactive as the students thoroughly enjoyed answering the questions and clarifying their doubts! They could spot out the healthy and unhealthy foodstuffs and made a healthy mind set to consume only healthy nutritive food. !
