The pilot Study was started in July 2016 screening 105 poor children in the rural areas adjoining the city of Chennai. The data on the above children comprising of height, weight, head circumference, dietary pattern, life style and other physical parameters were submitted to a Nutritionist for expert opinion.  Based on the recommendation of the Nutritionist, it was decided to go in for biological samples for analyzing various micro nutrients in the blood.  Accordingly, the major Study was started in February 2017 at the Kanchi Kamakoti CHILDS Trust Hospital and we have screened 68 patients on whom lab investigations are carried out for Iron, Feritine, CBC, Zinc and Vitamin D level assessment. We counselled all the patients for nutritional awareness.
