Eat Right Creativity Challenge

The 'Eat Right India' movement, a flagship program of FSSAI aims to ensure health and well-being of people through its safe food, healthy and sustainable diets by a coordinated multi-sectoral approach. Given that food habits are formed early in life and difficult to change thereafter; the focus of 'Eat Right School' program is on young people. A school is an obvious place where healthy eating habits may form. The Eat Right School program of FSSAI uses food as a pedagogical tool to bring in a sustainable change in the dietary habits of children. Young people are agents of change and their potential to influence entire families could be leveraged to change the way people eat.

The 'Eat Right Creativity Challenge' (ERCC) phase one was planned as a part of celebrations of the 150th year of Mahatma Gandhi's birthday from 14th Nov'18 - 17th Jan'19 to inculcate healthy eating habits through the creativity of an individual. Over 75100 students participated through 3621 schools in Phase 1, making it a huge success.

The Second Eat Right Creativity Challenge aims to tap the creative talent of students and enable them to inculcate healthy dietary habits starting young. The competition aims to encourage schools to create an environment of healthy and safe food to engage, excite and enable students to inculcate habits on food and nutrition. The competition will be from 16th Oct - 16th Dec 2020. All schools affiliated to recognized education boards are eligible for participation.
