Dr. Soma Chakrabarty, Ph.D. in Food and Nutrition
Dr. Soma Chakrabarty is working in the field of nutrition for more than the last 12 years. She has explored and experienced the entire range of malnutrition- ranging from under-nutrition to over-nutrition.
Being a student of food and nutrition since graduation, she has always prioritized developing her own food knowledge beyond just calorie, carbohydrate, and fat. She made an effort to develop supplementary food using our kitchen waste which matches the nutritional profile of other commercial formulas available in the market. Eventually, that becomes her doctoral thesis and got awarded in 2017 from the University of Calcutta.
Dr. Soma has worked as a nutritionist in both the health care industry as well as in the development sector. Experience of working with an organisation such as Talwalkars (Kolkata), Child In Need Institute (Kolkata), Naandi Foundation (Hyderabad) and international organizations like Unicef, Save the Children, World Bank on multiple projects has given her opportunities to explore rural India, interacting with farmers and agricultural labors, understanding the ground scenario of food production as well as the ecosystem which in turn nourished her own knowledge on food and nutrition
Dr. Soma strongly believes that food wisdom does not come only with an academic degree but also with experience and with an open mind. She always keeps herself open for the knowledge exchange which might help her to grow her food sense and you to develop a sensible and sustainable eating behavior to attain lasting wellness.
