Eat Right Creativity Challenge

The 'Eat Right India' movement was launched by the FSSAI with the goal of promoting healthy and sustainable diets through a coordinated multi-sectoral approach. This movement focuses on young people since food habits are formed early in life and are difficult to change thereafter. To bring about a sustainable change in the dietary habits of children, the 'Eat Right School' program uses food as a pedagogical tool. As part of the 'Eat Right School' program, the 'Eat Right Creativity Challenge' (ERCC) aims to tap into the creative talent of students to instill healthy dietary habits. This competition encourages schools to create an environment of healthy and safe food and engage, excite, and enable students to adopt healthy habits in food and nutrition. The ERCC has been conducted in multiple phases, with each phase having its own unique theme.

Recently, to commemorate 75 years of India's Independence, the ERCC featured three categories of competitions around healthy eating, including Poster making, Rangoli competition, and Bulletin board decoration.

The United Nations has declared 2023 as the International Year of Millets, and the FSSAI is taking this opportunity to promote millets as a healthy and sustainable dietary choice. The Eat Right Creativity Challenge Phase -04 is being launched to mark the celebration of the International Year of Millets. This competition will be held from 15th August 2023 - 26th January 2024 and will include four different categories of competitions to gauge students' knowledge and awareness of millet. These categories include a Poster competition, a Rangoli competition, a Slogan competition, and an Essay competition. Each category aims to raise awareness about the nutritional and health benefits of millets among school students in creative ways.
