Abstract

In India around ¾th of our paediatric population is suffering from one or other nutritional deficiencies which can be termed as Karshya. About 75-80% of hospitalized children suffer from some degree or type of malnutrition. Lots of attempts have been made to minimize this at National level. For this the immunization plans and milk distribution or midday meal to school going children alone will not be sufficient. Ayurveda can play major role in providing health to children. In Ayurveda, Balya and Brumhana Chikitsa for undernourished children is an interesting area in the field of Kaumarbhritya and since the prevalence of this disease in present scenario is more.
