Слайд 4: principles
The committee recognizes that: 1. The present and future health and well-being of school-age children are profoundly affected by dietary intake and the maintenance of a healthy weight. 2. Schools contribute to current and lifelong health and dietary patterns and are uniquely positioned to model and reinforce healthful eating behaviors in partnership with parents, teachers, and the broader community. 3. Because foods and beverages available on the school campus represent significant caloric intake, they should be designed to meet nutrition standards.
Слайд 5: principles
4. Foods and beverages have health effects beyond those related to vitamins, minerals, and other known individual components. 5. Implementation of nutrition standards for foods and beverages offered in schools will likely require clear policies; technical and financial support; a monitoring, enforcement, and evaluation program; and new food and beverage products. 6. The federally reimbursable school nutrition programs will be the primary source of foods and beverages offered at school

The body mass index of 22.9% women aged 15-49 indicates chronic energy deficiency. These figures should cause alarm that even after a long period of robust economic growth, India has not achieved a transformation.
