Our Initiatives

Britannia Nutrition Foundation’s programmes seeks to alleviate malnutrition and iron deficiency anaemia among children and adolescents in the underserved communities. The programme activities are focused at improving health and nutrition status of children, mothers and adolescents through a multi-pronged approach that works at three levels:

(i) At the Anganwadi Centre level, where through capacity building support to the Anganwadi workers, BNF aims to demonstrate strengthened functioning of the anganwadi centre, as a conduit for the delivery of quality nutrition, health and early child education services for young children, pregnant women and lactating mothers, and adolescent girls.

(ii) At the Community level, where through a behavior change led intervention, BNF intends to facilitate improvements in mothers’ and caregivers’ knowledge and practice of health, WASH and nutrition.

(iii) At the School level, by improving knowledge on food habits and inclusion of health, hygiene and nutrition education.

The programmes are implemented in collaboration with the Integrated Child Development Services (ICDS) of the Department of Women & Child Development, Health and Education Department.

Various need-based health camps are also organized at regular intervals to meet the specific needs of the community and to deliver medical services. The camps also provide for timely referral services to the patients for further or specialized care.
