Introduction: National Nutrition Week 2023 is observed between 1st to 7th September every year. Poshan or nutrition is the study of how the body uses all the essential nutrients in food to fuel and nourish itself. An individual’s nutrition, or poshan, starts right from the day they are born and lasts till they live.

To generate awareness among the general public about the significance of healthy eating practices and proper nutrition for upholding a nourishing lifestyle.
