For Aahaar Kranti to succeed, each and every educator in the country must come together. In 2021 we plan to reach one crore (10,000,000) students across socioeconomic classes and rural-urban divide working with school boards, NGOs, and Aanganwadis.

At the same time we are reaching to the best minds of this generation to tap into the leading scientific knowledge available to humanity.  Some education track initiatives include:

  • Literary Review on Nutrition
  • Projects to educate students

  • Competitions for best recipes and designs

Fifth grade students in Maharashtra, India were asked to create a fruit map of India. Students used these maps to understand and have a discussion on what produce grows where and what it takes for them to reach from the producer to the consumer

School students from a middle school in Bihar, India were asked to write a simple essay on the food habits of their family and the village in which they live. This essay was used to spark discussion about healthy food habits. ““Villagers eat simple food. They use dairy and fresh fruits and vegetables. This leads to their better health. They are sick less often. My village cultivates paddy, wheat, green leafy vegetables and lentils, which we use in our daily diet. We have fish in our ponds, too. We eat them for our health. We have poultry to give us meat and eggs for proteins and vitamins. Our village has the key to our health.”

Nutrition in India, A Literary Review, 2021

India produces more than enough calories to feed a third of humanity, yet vast swathes of her population are malnourished. We are bringing together the best academic minds around the globe to address this topic and establish a role model for the entire developing world. This literature review is part of the Aahar Kranti being sponsored by Vijnan Bharati, GIST, and various agencies of the Government of India including The Council of Scientific and Industrial Research and Indian Council of Agricultural Research.

The proposed literature review is meant to address the following topics, but does not have to be limited to them:

  1. Current nutritional practices in India including challenges and opportunities
  2. Relationship between nutritionally balanced diet and metrics related to health, longevity and cognitive development
  3. Studies on impact of nutritionally balanced diet on students and society
  4. Agricultural, societal and educational interventions for improving nutritional practices in India
  5. Role of fruits and vegetables in a nutritionally balanced diet
  6. Studies on importance and opportunity of using local flora for nutritionally balanced diet
  7. Relationship between socioeconomic category and nutrition
  8. Use of AI and other advanced technologies to improve nutritional practices

Aahaar Database

Education about Aahar Kranti must be multi-faceted. This is why we are developing online material, mobile-apps, games, projects, and other educational materials for the schools in India and around the world.

One of the cornerstones of the education on nutrition is the Aahaar Database of 10,000 edible plants. Below you will find the two images in the chart format that cover nutritional and Ayurvedic information about 200 fruits, vegetables, spices and other food materials that are most common in India. Please contact us at any of our social media handles or at aahaarkranti AT gmail for getting these images as charts that can be used at schools, Aanganwadis or other educational centers.
