Investing in the nutrition of the 1.2 billion adolescents (population in the age group of 10-19 years ) will shape the world’s future. A fifth of these adolescents i.e. 253 million live in India. Ensuring India’s adolescents are nourished and growing well is critical to achieving India’s demographic dividend. The CNNS Data Survey provides insights to support healthy growth throughout childhood and adolescence. Additionally, focusing on adolescent girls, before they become mothers, is critical to break India’s intergenerational cycle of malnutrition. Schools are a cross-sectoral platform to address good nutrition – diets, services and behaviours. CNNS gives important program insights on strengthening nutrition in school premises.
