Education, health and nutrition are interlinked and are crucial for a child’s holistic growth and development.  The right nutrition can have a profound impact on a child’s ability to grow, learn and rise out of poverty. It also benefits society, by boosting productivity and improving economic prospects for families and communities. At the moment, the Government of India has many programmes to resolve the issue of malnutrition and its consequences. Unfortunately, each program works in its own separate silo, with little engagement with the concerns of the other.

This presentation is intended to serve as a model for teachers to develop better lesson plans when dealing with the topic of nutrition and the components of food.
