National Nutrition Week is observed on September 1 to 7 each year to raise awareness around eating healthy and nutritious.
Nutrition is basic human necessity and a requirement for living a healthy life. A balanced diet is vital for growth, development, and an active life beginning at a young age.
It is the science that deals with all the many components of food and how adequate nutrition is achieved.
The theme of the 2021 National Nutrition Week is “feeding smart right from start”. The government has established a program to provide correct information and raise awareness through seminars and camps.
These help in imparting every child and citizen of India with knowledge on how children may benefit from a good nutritional diet, right from birth.
