The month of September has been declared as the “Rashtriya Poshan Maah” / National Nutrition Month by the Government of India. In order to bring nutrition to the centre-stage of the National Development Agenda, Government of India launched POSHAN Abhiyaan i.e. PM's Overarching Scheme for Holistic Nourishment in March, 2018, anchored by the Ministry of Women and Child Development.
