Here’s our tribute to four Instagram stars who helped promote the cause
When Outlook Poshan 2.0 launched the #Reach Each Child Campaign, a group of Instagram influencers took it to heart. Not only did they become powerful force multipliers by spreading the word among their numerous followers, they also ensured that people they met offline were briefed about the campaign, aimed at ensuring that each one of us do our bit to prevent children dying of hunger and malnutrition. Here’s a salute to four influencers who did their bit to bring malnutrition back into our civil discourse.

Mona, a blogger and Instagram lifestyle influencer with 104k followers, promoted the Reach Each Child campaign by posting about ‘window of opportunity’ in the first 1000 days of a child’s life, which starts from conception till the child is about 2 years old, and positively engaged her followers to respond to the cause.

A fashion blogger and Instagram influencer with 56.5k followers, Anjali Dogra shared an Outlook Poshan story on how an all-women owned and managed poultry co-operative in Madhya Pradesh transformed several malnutrition-prone villages, simply by improving the availability of eggs in rural India.
