During the nutrition month, the Women and Child Development Department employees worked to spread door-to-door communication in the capital. Under this program, activities were started to build awareness about proper nutrition in pregnant women and lactating mothers and kids.

The department identified malnourished kids, close monitoring of work being done in Aanganwadi centers, ration availability at homes for the government scheme's beneficiaries, and giving the necessary diet to pregnant women and lactating mothers.
