The future, the children or the powerhouse of a country the whole country depends on it. But in India about every 10 children in 100 are unhealthy. This problem occurs due to insufficient diet, poverty or due to the hereditary problem.

Insufficient diet:-

This is the major cause of undernutrition as many children don't get enough food as per their need that is why our health government and UNICEF has started giving a healthy diet to children at their schools and through a wellness program.
