    Malnutrition is a persistent bane in India. While the ICDS has been attempting to ameliorate for several decades, the problem is not going. There are a couple of issues here. Firstly, we do not have the correct and verifiable data about the malnourished. The available survey date is rather dated. How can we help malnourished children if the system does not have accurate and current data of suffering children! Identification of the relevant kids is the fist step. Understanding the magnitude in real numbers is the second prerequisite. Then there is the intervention planning, implementation and monitoring issues. Here also, measurement is the key. Srichid has come out with a framework for digitising the process.
