Good nutrition has the power to empower the present and future generations. India’s greatest national treasure is its people, especially women and children but even after 75 years of independence, a majority of them do not get the required diet to meet their nutritional needs.

Situation in India

  • Stunting- While there was some reduction in stunting rates (35.5% from 38.4% in NFHS­4) 13 States or Union Territories have seen an increase in stunted children since NFHS­4; this includes Gujarat, Maharashtra, West Bengal and Kerala.
  • Malnutrition- Malnutrition trends across NFHS surveys show that wasting, the most visible and life threatening form of malnutrition has either risen or has remained stagnant over the years.
  • Anaemia-India also has the highest prevalence of anaemia in the world. The NFHS­5 survey indicates that more than 57% of women (15­49 years) and over 67% children (six­59 months) suffer from anaemia.
