Gurugram, June 10
Around 2,500 children were reported as malnourished in Gurugram during a survey by the Women and Child Development Department.
The survey was conducted amongst one lakh children below the age of five years and 2,500 children were found malnourished as per the parameters of WHO.
The children surveyed by anganwadi workers and supervisors along with a local NGO were underweight and had stunted growth. With visible signs of weakness and malnourishment, these children will not only be monitored by local anganwadi centres, but a detailed health checkup will also be conducted. They will be put on supplementary nutrition to bridge the gap.To find out malnourished children in the city, the Women and Child Development Department conducted a special survey in April under a special campaign. “Anthropometric measurement plays a crucial role in tackling malnourished children. With the height and weight measurement, our anganwadi workers found out that 2,500 kids were malnourished. ,” said Sunaina Khatri, district programme officer of the department.
