In India, more than 50% of young children are suffering from malnutrition which causes reduced physical growth and cognitive development which ultimately leads to poor school performance and sometimes disease. Surprisingly, even children from well-to-do families are also malnourished. The major reason for this is not due to scarcity of food or resources, but because of inadequate knowledge of parents about the right and balanced diet.
