We need to create awareness among the students on the fortified food available in the market and its benefits. Tamil Nadu Salt Corporation has been supplying Double Fortified Salt (Iron and Iodine) which is available in the fair price shops but people hesitate to buy the salt since they are neither aware that it is double fortified salt nor the benefit of consuming that salt. Likewise Fortified cooking oil is available in the ration shops but no one knows this oil is fortified with vitamins. We have created awareness among the general public and the students by using the Swasth Bharat Yathra. Health organisations, NGOs involved in coordinating School Citizens Consumer Clubs, ASHA Workers, Anganwadi Workers and RBSK medical teams need to be oriented so that they create awareness among the women, students and the general public.
