MAHORE: In continuation with the Poshan Maah celebrations presently going on across the State, CDPO ICDS Project Mahore Anjum Ganai on Wednesday organised a fancy dress competition in Mountaineer Convent Public School in Mahore.
To give momentum to the awareness campaign, Anjum Ganai CDPO said that we need to launch sustained outreach activities during the Poshan Maah at block and at Anganwadi Centre level with the aim of reaching every household with the message of nutrition – ‘Har Ghar Poshan Tyohar’. The main objective of the Poshan Maah is to fight malnutrition and to conduct awareness campaign to eat quality food in a hygienic way. Though there are many schemes that deal directly or indirectly with the malnutrition of children, pregnant women and lactating mothers but the level of malnutrition is still high. The Poshan Maah will be playing a crucial role in a holistic way, she added.
During the fancy dress competition, the students cheerfully showcased their talent by dressing up as fruits and vegetables. It was pleasure to watch the toddlers dressed up as different characters, it was overwhelming to see our little ones speak confidently about the fruits/ vegetables they were depicting, said Ganai.
On the occasion recipe demonstration/ healthy food demonstration organised by the field staff ie Anganwadi workers and supervisors was given to the children in such an innovative way as to interact with the children.
