The campaign will continue until Oct 17, the National Institute of Nutrition said in a statement on Thursday.

It said the campaign has been delayed because the authorities needed more time for advocacy meetings, volunteer training, journalist orientation, publicity programmes, transportation of health care materials to different parts of the country .
