National Nutrition Week

India observes the National Nutrition Week each year from September 1 to 7 to raise public awareness about the benefits of nutrition and healthy eating habits. It was first proposed in 1975 by the members of the American Dietetic Association (ADA), currently known as the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics to promote nutrition consumption and the profession of dietitians.
India started observing the National Nutrition Week since 1982. During the week the government conducts awareness campaign about the importance of nutrition in maintaining a healthy and sustainable lifestyle. The theme for this year is “feeding smart right from start”.
