In order to create awareness about malnourishment to the parents of the children, a program for children is organized at the Anganwadis. Children of 3 to 6 years gather at the various Anganwadis along with their parents. The program aims to encourage the children who change their grade and become healthy by rewarding them and their families with gifts.
The parents are updated on their children’s weight and development through growth charts. Parents are also provided with basic information about how to practice sanitation, hygiene and discipline in everyday life. They are also made aware of the activities carried out at the Anganwadi centers, such as pre primary education activities, Birthday encouragement, clean child contest, drawings, various craft items etc.
