Traditional food systems are well-adapted to local ecological, sociocultural, and economic conditions, making them well-suited for maintaining widespread food and health security. Indian Government has taken significant steps for providing food security and combating malnutrition over the past five decades. The Government of India has launched an Integrated Nutritional Support Programme (INSP) with a focus on practices that promote health, well-being, and immunity against disease and malnutrition. Poshan Vatika (Nutri-Gardens) proposed at the Anganwadi centers under INSP is an initiative toward the eradication of malnutrition and significantly contributes toward achieving the sustainable development goals.
