@PMOIndia
Prime Minister Narendra Modi has announced to celebrate September as a month of nutrition. In his Mann Ki Baat programme today, Mr. Modi laid emphasis on creating awareness to fight malnutrition among children, particularly the girl child.

AIR correspondent reports that last year, Gujarat Government launched a pilot project, Poshan Abhiyan which is a statewide mission to eradicate malnutrition among children. Chief Minister Vijay Rupani had also launched 'Purna' project to eliminate malnutrition among the girls in the age group of 14 to 18. 

State Government had allocated Rs. 270 crore for this pilot project. PURNA project is also known as Prevention of under Nutrition and Reduction of Nutritional Anaemia among Adolescent Girls. Now, the awareness campaign during the September will further boost the Poshan Abhiyan in the state.
