Malnutrition in children and women remains as one of the greatest challenges in India. Malnutrition remains a major threat to the survival, growth and development of children.
Three would be grooms take a pledge that they won’t marry a girl below the age of 18 and take her as their life partner so that their future child is saved from the evil of malnutrition.
A girl under the age of 18 is not physically and mentally ready and prepared for the responsibility of being a mother. In such a scenario, her child is always imperilled to the risk of malnutrition. That’s why please don’t even consider marrying your daughter till the time she is at least 18. And provide full cooperation to the country in this fight to eradicate malnutrition.
Malnutrition is lack of right nutrition. A child is specially most prone to the danger of malnutrition from the time of its conception till two years of its age which is very important period for the overall growth. Today, nearly every second child in our country is a victim of malnutrition. It means they are physically and mentally weak due to which they are targets to many ailments, deformities, disabilities and allergies affecting normal growth mentally and physically. So we should jointly wage a war against malnutrition.
