NEW DELHI - March 26, 2017 - PRLog -- Child malnutrition is both the result of economic conditions and poor nutritional awareness. Nutrition education has been recognized as one of the long-term sustainable interventions essential to tackle the problem of malnutrition in India.

It is important to teach healthy eating habits to a child early as these are critical years of development and have a major impact on the health of the child in the future. Nutrition education should begin as the child enters her/his preschool years.

Educating Mothers: Nutrition knowledge in the hands of those who need it most!

For a mother to teach her child the benefits of healthy eating it is necessary for her to be empowered with the knowledge herself.
