Nutrition

Kids can’t reach their potential on an empty stomach. We’re here to help children and caregivers make wise nutritional choices even when resources are limited.

Spotting the many faces of malnutrition

A third of the world’s malnourished children live in India. Severe malnourishment leads to stunting and wasting which in turn affects brain development, learning capacity and vulnerability to nutrition-related diseases.
One of the leading causes for malnourishment is economic inequality. Oddly, when disposable income does become available, the foods of choice may not be the healthiest.

Modeling a positive way out

Sesame Workshop India works with communities to build awareness about available foods and cooking practices that can deliver the much-needed nutrition to young children. By addressing behaviors like breakfast-skipping in the early years through positive role models, we help advance children’s physical and cognitive growth.

We’d love to keep you posted about all the good things going on at the Workshop.
