After Priyanka Chopra, it is Kareena Kapoor Khan who will be working for the campaign of UNICEF. Just when Kareena was about to have Taimur she walked down the ramp gracefully flaunting her baby bump.
Not just the ramp walk she even gave her inputs for the nutritionist Rujuta Diwekar’s book Pregnancy Notes: Before, During & After. After this Kareena has now been honoured with the post goodwill ambassador of India. According to the sources Kareena Kapoor Khan is all set to spread awareness about the good health among women and children.
Says a source, “According to research, a majority of women, especially in the interiors of India, don’t know the basic dos and don’ts of pregnancy and the first few months post motherhood. So now, as part of the campaign, Kareena will be advising them on how to feed new-born babies and challenge practices that risk their lives as well as that of expecting mothers. She wants to tell everyone to take care of their girl child as female infanticide is a serious issue, too.”
Kareena will soon be seen travelling to different tier II cities. “She will educate women about what safety measures they should take in the first six months post pregnancy. She will also deliver speeches on the kind of nutrition and diet they should follow,” adds the source.
As per the sources said the actress will be visiting a city every two months. Kareena says, “It is possible to keep more babies alive and healthy. The government is doing everything it can to ensure adequate service delivery. However, it’s not only about the administration doing its bit but also about civil society taking relevant and collective action.”
