  • 16. CHALLENGES :  reduction in the proportion of undernourished children in India.  levels of undernutrition are shockingly high in socioeconomic groups - girls, rural areas, the poorest and scheduled tribes and castes are the worst affected .  Child malnutrition is the result of high levels of exposure to infection and inappropriate infant and young child feeding and caring practices.  The ICDS program, while successful in many ways, has not made a significant dent in child malnutrition. This is mostly due to the priority that the program has placed on food supplementation, targeting mostly children after the age of three when malnutrition has already set in.
  • 17. Continued.. Growth-monitoring activities need to be performed with greater regularity.  Involving communities ,  improve quality of service delivery  increase accountability in the system. 
  • 18. LOOPHOLES:        Inadequate worker skills, shortage of equipment, poor supervision and weak monitoring and evaluation. Community workers are overburdened, because they are expected to provide pre-school education to four to six year olds as well as nutrition services to all children under six. Because of the emphasis on food supplementation and pre-school education, most children under three years are not targeted. Lack of community participation. Lack of teaching skills.
