    Recently Narendra Modi, the Chief Minister of Gujarat, encouraged people of Gujarat to give more attention and direction towards health and nutrition point of views. During the school enrolment program/function at Megalpur village, He suggests people of Gujarat to be more concerned about healthy diets to their children.

    Hello,

    Malnutrition problem is not only in Gujarat but also major problem for India. We can see daily advertisement of Amir khan in television. In all over the world the born child death is highest in India. just two days ago, I read that there is 100 child death in world, in them twenty nine is of India.

    Medical conditions that can contribute to malnutrition include:

    A condition that causes a lack of appetite, such as cancer, liver disease, persistent pain or nausea
    A mental health condition, such as depression or schizophrenia, which may affect your ability to look after yourself .

    Physical factors

    Physical factors can contribute to malnutrition. For example:

    If your teeth are in a poor condition, or if dentures don't fit properly, eating can be difficult or painful.

    Finally, The next time is very hard for us to fight against this problem. We hope we won against malnutrition as we just won against polio.

    Regards,
    Chintan
