Malnutrition is more common in India (~43%) than in Sub-Saharan Africa (~26%)*.
Anemia (low levels of haemoglobin) affects 74% children in India under 3 years, more than 90% of adolescent girls and around 50% of women*.
Multiple studies over the years have shown that malnourished children are less likely to perform well in school and are more likely to grow into malnourished adults.
India faces a grave malnutrition crisis that needs urgent attention.
The Breakfast Revolution (TBR) fights malnutrition by supplementing children's daily diet with fortified foods (to cover deficits in micro and macro nutrients), coupled with deworming and regular health assessments.
