Joint Noon Assembly

April 2018


Press Release dated 09th April 2018 related to Noon Assembly in Schools, an effective way to address Vitamin D deficiencies. (Uploaded on: 09.04.2018)


Most children suffer from Vitamin D deficiency. Vitamin D is essential for calcium absorption in the body, deficiency of which leads to weakness of bones and other lifestyle related disorders. One of the ways to get the "Sunshine Vitamin" is exposure to the sunlight from 11:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m and consumption of foods fortified with Vitamin D and A like milk and edible oil. These products have +F logo on their packs for easy identification. FSSAI proposes Joint Noon Assembly as a simple strategy that can be implemented through schools and the school curriculum. It has been observed that with decreasing zenith angle, conversion to active form of Vitamin D is higher. The zenith angle decreases during 11 am - 2pm (minimum is seen at 12 and 1 pm). Hence,this is the best time for our skin to synthesize Vitamin D when exposed to Sun. Therefore, it is proposed to alter simple daily activities like shifting morning assembly to noon in order to get maximum benefits.
