'Safe and Nutritious Food at School' is a nation-wide campaign
to help school children inculcate the habit of eating safe and
eating right. The Yellow Book, the resource book for this
campaign helps children learn about safe and wholesome food in a
fun, interactive way, through curricular and extra-curricular
activities. It has two volumes for primary and secondary school
students respectively. An excellent Teacher’s Training Manual is
also available. These books and more can be downloaded from
FSSAI's Citizen's Portal.
Students are the most susceptible to food-borne diseases and due to their lack of awareness, are open to experimenting with food and diet while at school. Food Funda's objective is to create continuous engagement with students, teachers & parents to make them aware about the importance of Safe & Nutritious Food. Project SNF@SCHOOL is based on a three-pronged approach, at the school, state and national level. This is being done through curricular or co-curricular activities. At school level, the culture of food safety & nutrition is to be promoted through Health and Wellness Coordinators and Health Teams. An enabling legislative and regulatory framework is being developed to promulgate this message. The success rides on every individual as a stakeholder because safe & nutritious food is not only a necessity, but a way of life & a shared responsibility.
