Raising awareness about nutrition and diet diversity among school children from tribal villages in India through nutritional calendar.
The following is the transcription of the audio interview.

My name is Ramesh Harijan. I am in class 7th at Upper Primary School, Bhejaguda. I learned from M.S.Swaminathan, LANSA, Nutrition calendar, regarding self care and hygiene. I came to know about the balanced diet and should include fruits, vegetables, fish, meat, egg, etc. in our daily diet as per the time requirement. Also, I can aware to my parents about the cleanliness of our surroundings, hand wash before intake of food and wash vegetables before cutting for preparation of food. Usually, I look at the calendar and read the nutrition messages so I easily remember it. Hence this calendar helps us in different direction and gives knowledge in every aspect.
