Nutritional Campaign

NESFAS aspires that every community eats clean food which is locally available in their traditional food system. To this end, NESFAS implements an ongoing campaign to enhance diversity of food on the plate. The framework of food diversity that NESFAS has adopted is the FAO Minimum Dietary Diversity. As part of the campaign, various activities are conducted in schools, home visits are conducted and community programme are organised where communities engage to express themselves in the form of dance, song or traditional couplets called Phawar. Cooking demonstrations are also conducted with mothers, ASHA and Aganwadi workers, and youth. The aim is to remind people of the simple ways in which local food can be cooked in a tasty and nutritious manner.
