Empowering every child with “Poshan to Pathshala” - An initiative under Daily Feeding Program

Child malnutrition is a widespread problem in the entire country, which creates a vicious cycle of poverty, low economic growth, and health concerns. The major reasons for high child mortality rate in India are poor maternal health and improper nutrition availability in the first few years of a child’s life. As per the 2021 National Family Health Survey (NFHS)-5 India report, 1 in every 3 children is underweight.

While India continues to make strides in many spheres, child hunger and malnutrition remains to be one of the most pressing issues. A child on an empty stomach will not be able to perform to their best abilities, leading to unequal access to opportunities. Children who suffer from hunger for long-term go on to become malnourished, which affects them physically, mentally, and socially.

With the Poshan to Pathshala campaign, Feeding India is supporting schools for low-income families through daily meals. The goal is to ensure that all the children in their formative years gets the right nutrition for their holistic development.
