Celebration of World Food Day 2015:
Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations has declared the theme for World Food Day 16th October 2015 as- Social Protection and Agriculture: Breaking the Cycle of Rural Poverty.
CBSE Shri Atal Bihari Vajpayee Expression Series 2015 :
This theme has been chosen to highlight its importance in reducing rural poverty and granting access to food or means to buy food. Social protection translates into a variety of programmes around food security that enhances income, provides rights and builds capacities. Social protection also provides solutions for combating malnourishment issues which weaken the future economy of a nation.
** In India, food problem does not mean unavailability of food but deficit of proper nutritious food.
** As much as 40% of all fruits, vegetables and food grains grown in India never make it to the market.
** India is one of the world’s fastest growing economies with about 7% overall economic growth over the past decade….,yet 40% of Indian children remain chronically malnourished …
** Juvenile diabetes, malnourishment, deficiency diseases, anaemia, obesity among children are the result of ignoring the importance of nutrition
In this context, the Board recommends that schools may conduct a number of interesting activities to raise awareness while celebrating World Food Day-2015, as students are the Agents of Change.
