Growth Monitoring a Promotion

Growth monitoring, nutritional surveillance and analysis of the nutritional status of children are imperative for assessing the impact of the health and nutrition-related services. 'Mother and Child Protection Cards' are maintained for all children below six years. Their growth is charted both to detect growth faltering, stagnation and to assess their nutritional status which aids in assessing the utilisation of the current strategies and helps in community mobilisation to enable better childcare practices at home.
