MARG intervention study (29) conducted in India aimed to evaluate the impact of a school-based health and nutritional education program on knowledge and behavior of Indian school children. They educated 40196 children (aged 8 – 18 years), 25000 parents and 1500 teachers about health, nutrition, physical activity, non-communicable diseases and healthy cooking practices in three cities of North India (New Delhi, Agra, Jaipur) during the period August 2006 to December 2008. Major gaps exist in health and nutrition-related knowledge and behavior of Indian children, parents and teachers.

This successful and comprehensive educative intervention could be incorporated in school-based health a>GET ANSWER
