Adequate nutrition, positive environment key to child’s development: VP

New Delhi, Sep 4 (UNI) Vice President M Venkaiah Naidu on Friday called for a well-strategised collective action on multiple fronts to ensure well-being of young children for India to take full advantage of our demographic dividend.
"Child development should be the foundation of our development architecture," the Vice President said while releasing 'The State of Young Child in India' report, a comprehensive account of the challenges related to early child development in India.
Appreciating the report prepared by Mobile Creches, a policy advocacy organisation working with under-privileged children across India, he said such reports helped in policy formulation by developing greater understanding of the shortcomings and urgent needs of the children. He also appreciated the publisher Taylor & Francis Group for making the digital copy of report freely available for everyone.
