Health and wellbeing is an outcome of what one eats, drinks and breathes in. We know today that a poorly nourished pregnant woman is almost certain to give birth to a smaller child with challenges to its physical and cognitive development. Conversely, poorly managed food and beverage consumption along with unhealthy lifestyles, will result in disorders of metabolism and ill health. India struggles with both ends of this spectrum of ill health, to which high quality, timely nutrition is the solution.
Ensuring that high quality nutrition is available and accessible to every Indian, particularly its mothers and children, along with clean water and air, is a challenge that involves a wide gamut of stakeholders, from the farmer & the industries to policy makers in the government, and all points in between.
The session focuses on ensuring good food, good water and good air for all so that we can achieve better health at both end; those suffering from chronic deficiency of nutrition and those falling prey to bad food, lifestyle and pollution.
