ver wondered why so many cereals and infant formulaeare fortified with iron? Youneed it as iron is needed forthe production of haemoglobin. Without Red Blood Cells (RBC),oxygen is not delivered to all thecells. And poor haemoglobin lev-el leads to anaemia and poor im-munity.Britannia, one of India’s lead-ing biscuit company, as part of itsinitiative to help combat iron de-ficiency among children, islaunching a mass awareness pro-gramme on the importance of iron for children through schoolsacross Tamil Nadu. The pro-gramme will start from July-end. At a press conference in the city on Wednesday, Anuradha Nara-simhan, category director, Bri-tannia Industries Limited, saidthat children in the country weregrossly under-nourished. The on-ly way to create awarenessamong children and parents isthrough schools. “As part of ourprogramme, we have selected 10cities in Tamil Nadu where theawareness programmes will beheld.”“Our target is to cover all theschools in these cities and bring nutrition awareness to the schoolchildren. This will be done in aninteresting story telling mannerto internalise the nutrition mes-sage,” Anuradha said.Britannia has already launchedTiger Banana and Tiger Glucosebiscuits rich in iron content.
