As a part of the nutrition week celebrations, the students of I B.Sc, Food Science and Processing Management, performed short skit presentations on different topics related to health and disease of women and children. Programs were presented in the local language centered on the role of nutrients namely calcium and iron in the diet and the importance of breast feeding. The topics were chosen based on the current scenario of poor calcium and iron status among women and young children and the need to create awareness on the importance of breast feeding in the society. The presentations were lively and informative emphasizing on the role of nutrients, their requirements and deficiency disorders. The third skit highlighted the importance of feeding colostrum to new born infants and the benefits of mother’s milk over bottle feed.
