Hidden hunger is a state of deficiencies in humans caused by insufficient consumption of vitamins and minerals. Hidden hunger is a big problem especially in schools where students are fed on only posho and beans without any vegetables or fruits at all. Micronutrients are important for good health, strengthening the immune system, normal brain growth and high academic performance. Lack of sufficient vegetables and mineral salts in the diet leads to low academic performance among students.
To tackle hidden hunger we have embarked on school vegetable gardens to provide enough vegetables for micro nutrients to students in school.
