A Memorandum of Understanding was signed between the Ministry of AYUSH and Ministry of Women and Child Development today in New Delhi for controlling Malnutrition as a part of POSHAN Abhiyaan. The MoU will see some time-tested and scientifically proven Ayush-based solutions being adopted for controlling malnutrition in the country.
 
 AYUSH Secretary Vaidya Rajesh Kotecha and Women and Child Development Secretary Ram Mohan Mishra signed the MoU in the presence of Minister of Women and Child Development Smriti Irani, Minister for WCD. Minister of Ayush Shripad Yesso Naik, joined the ceremony through Video Conference. Speaking on the occasion, Mrs Irani said that the collaboration of efforts of both the Ministries will go a long way in tackling the problem of malnutrition in mothers and children in the country. She said that Nutri-gardens and medicinal gardens will be established in every Anganwadi in near future.
 
On this occasion, Shripad Yesso Naik said that Ayurveda and other AYUSH systems have much to contribute in dealing with mild and moderate mal-nutrition by way of many specific measures such as right intake of diet by the pregnant women, feeding practices by lactating mothers, use of traditional products augmenting milk secretion and nutritional food for children. He further said that India enjoys the distinction of having the largest network of traditional health care systems which are widely accepted owing to its wide accessibility, affordability, safety and trust of people.
