The main aim of our webinar is to provide awareness of healthy nutrition and how it fulfills the needs of our bodies in our daily routines.
A healthy body translates to a healthy mind. Nutrition is at the heart of our everyday lives, and a well-balanced and nutritious diet is essential for keeping this cycle in check.
According to UNICEF India, a quarter of women of reproductive age are malnourished and inevitably give birth to low-birth-weight and undernourished babies, perpetuating an intergenerational cycle of malnutrition.
Among 3 of 2 children between six months and two years of age are malnourished which supports their rapidly growing bodies and brains. This puts them at risk of poor brain development, weak learning, low immunity, increased infections and, in many cases, death.
Even the problem of malnutrition was faced by women from decades; it is always a stumbling back of many women all over the world.
Adequate nutrition, a fundamental cornerstone of any individual’s health, is especially critical for women because inadequate nutrition wreaks havoc not only on women’s own health but also on the health of their children. Children of malnourished women are more likely to face cognitive impairments, short stature, lower resistance to infections, overweight, anemia prevalence, diabetes, raised blood pressure, and a higher risk of disease and death throughout their lives.
Briefing about women's nutrition has brought forth positive changes because healthy women can fulfill their multiple roles of generating income, ensuring their families’ nutrition, and having healthy children more effectively and thereby helping advance countries’ socioeconomic development.
