In keeping with Outlook’s legacy of taking up causes that matter to the people, Outlook Poshan Awards 2019 were given away to several organisations and individuals by the Honourable Vice President of India, Shri M. Venkaiah Naidu, at New Delhi’s Vigyan Bhawan. The awardees—selected by an eminent jury—have selflessly fought malnutrition in various parts of the country and made a difference to society. Professor M.S. Swaminathan, the father of India’s Green Revolution, was honoured with the Outlook Poshan Living Legend Award.
Outlook Poshan aims to add impetus to Poshan Abhiyaan, the government of India’s flagship initiative to eradicate malnutrition, by helping create conversations around the issue that is critical in building a healthy India. Experts agree that a people’s movement against malnutrition is the need of the hour, but it can happen only when citizens are better informed and more aware about what is at stake. For greater understanding of developments and challenges in the nutrition sector, Outlook has already launched a dedicated website, www.poshan.outlookindia.com. In the coming days, we will do more to raise awareness about poshan. A Suposhit India is Outlook’s objective.
