HÀ NỘI — Hà Nội has adopted a plan to ensure 78 per cent of children aged 6-23 months enjoy an adequate diet by 2025, which will increase to 80 per cent by 2030.
The rate of adult intake of fruit and vegetables will reach 65 per cent by 2025 and 70 per cent by 2030. Under the plan, recently issued by the municipal People’s Committee to realise the national nutrition strategy for 2022-2030, no family will lack food from 2025.
80 per cent of communes and wards will offer nutrition consultations to pregnant women and those with children aged below two will receive basic health care packages provided by medical stations in communes, wards and towns. The rate is expected to reach 100 per cent by 2030.
To such end, 70 per cent of schools must offer menus with proper nutrition as recommended by the Ministry of Health by 2025 and the rate will increase to 90 per cent by 2030.
By 2025, 90 per cent of hospitals in the city will conduct health check-ups and treatment based on feeding regimes suitable for nutritional and the pathological status of patients, with the figure rising to 100 per cent by 2030. — VNS
