It is necessary to have a healthy nutritious diet for the proper growth and development of children. UdyogYantra has developed an AI device for real-time child nutrition and growth tracking.
Over 149.2 million children globally are suffering from undernutrition. And many of them fall in the severely malnourished category. Malnutrition affects a child’s health and results in low body weight, prominent bones, muscular dysfunction, and altered immunity.
Despite the Central and state governments implementing the PM POSHAN programme in government schools to provide proper nutrition to children during school hours, they are given low-quality and insufficient food due to lack of proper monitoring. To overcome this problem, UdyogYantra, a deep-tech startup in Delhi, has invented and patented an IoT-AI device, named NutreGRO. It tracks the food quality and nutrition being provided to children and its impact on child growth.
“Our NutreGro device helps the school to capture and maintain a digital nutrition report card and health record of each child. We enable 100% traceability of every meal given to the individual student. Using NutreGro device, the children with malnutrition, underweight, and growth abnormalities can be well detected in advance,” claims Ankur Jain, Founder and CEO, UdyogYantra.
