Poshan Abhiyaan, launched by Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi on 8th March 2018, has reached a long way in ensuring wider people’s participation. Poshan Abhiyan endeavors to improve nutritional outcomes in a holistic manner in convergence with other Ministries. Behavioural change at individual and community level is an important component to achieve the desired goals of Poshan Abhiyan. Clarion calls from the Prime Minister on various occasions including ‘Mann ki Baat’ further helped to sensitize the masses on issues concerning nutrition through Jan Andolan based mass public participation.
During the last held nutrition-centric Jan Andolan-based celebrations during Poshan Maah in September 2020, the setting-up of Poshan Vatika gained momentum, as a result of which 10.87 lakhs plantation drives in the form of Kitchen Garden held at Anganwadi level. Simultaneously, during the same period, AYUSH-based interventions further helped to disseminate knowledge on age-old nutritional practices.
Ministry of Women & Child Development will be the nodal Ministry for coordinating activities during the Poshan Pakhwada. In the State/UT, Department of Women & Child Development /Social Welfare Department will be the nodal department for Poshan Pakhwada.
