The Problem

More than 19 crore people in India are undernourished – the highest in the world

The number of overweight and obese persons in India (15-49 years of age) has almost doubled over the past 10 years

Lifestyle and diet-related disorders are increasingly affecting our children. Nearly 1 out of every 10 children is pre-diabetic; 5% are overweight and 5% suffer from blood pressure

Ultra-processed junk food is becoming easily accessible and highly popular. More than 50% school children (9-17 years of age) in India consume packaged food and beverages daily

A Bold Vision

As the above facts and figures reveal, India is suffering from the triple burden of malnutrition: undernutrition (lack of proper nutrition), overnutrition (overconsumption of certain nutrients) and nutrient deficiency (deficiency of vitamins and minerals). A large part of the population is not able to access even the minimum quantity of affordable healthy food required to nourish the body. At the same time, unhealthy food is becoming increasingly accessible, even among low-income communities, leading to an increase in consumption of unhealthy food and resulting non-communicable diseases in India.

Foodshaala Foundation is the result of our determination to change this disturbing reality and make true the vision of a food and nutrition secure world. We believe that the solution to the problem of malnutrition rests on the two primary pillars of increased access to healthy food and increased knowledge on healthy eating.

 

Accordingly, our vision is to ensure a world where every person is able to make healthy food a part of their daily life. Our mission is to enable people to choose and access healthy food.

When it's hot, we all crave for a nice refreshing drink. We partnered with Ginny's Planet to share some tasty Summer Sipper recipes with children. Children can easily make these using fruits and vegetables and enjoy these natural cooling drinks instead of the sugary drinks they normally consume in summers. Check out the recipe for Red Juice here.
