At a distance of 2 km from Kevadiya Railway Station, and 6 km from Statue of Unity, Children Nutrition Park is a unique theme park situated in Kevadia town. Located near the Statue of Unity Ticket Counter, it is one of the popular gardens in Kevadiya, and among the must-visit places as part of the Statue of Unity tour.

Envisioned & conceptualized by Hon'ble Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi, the Children Nutrition Park has been developed as part of Kevadia Integrated Development to inspire children to eat healthily and understand the role of nutrition in their mental and physical growth. It is the first technologically driven theme park in the world.

The Children Nutrition Park provides high-quality entertainment and vital knowledge to the children on healthy eating habits and nutritional values based on the theme of 'SAHI POSHAN DESH ROSHAN.' The entire park is designed and implemented for the benefit of the children and extensive use of state-of-the-art technology is being made, which gives a fascinating experience to the children visiting the park. The main feature of this park is the Nutri Train. Starting from Ekta Junction station, the train runs on a 600 meters long track and takes children to various stations.

The first Station on this route is aptly named Phalshaka Griham, where children should know about agriculture, sowing, caring, and harvesting. There are games and communication panels here, which points to the importance of fresh vegetables and fruits, how they contribute various essential nutrients, and also act as immunity warrior. PayoNagari is the second station where the mascot informs the children about the importance of milk and milk products. Some very engaging games are part of PayoNagari Station such as 'Feed the Cow', 'Churn The Butter', 'Cow Stands Out' and 'Milk Story in a Hologram Box'. There is a long Experience Tunnel between the 2nd & 3rd station that showcases a fantasy farm with a light and sound show.

The third station is Annapurna where a digital mascot - a Mother (Maa) welcomes children with a heart-warming and informative song through a Hologram projection. This song conveys to children, the importance of home-cooked food for great health. The fourth Station on this route is Poshan Puram where the mascot Shakti welcomes the children and points out the two most important elements to complete the wholesome nutrition for our bodies, nuts-seeds, and water. The fifth and the last station on the route is Swastha Bharatam which promotes the importance of physical activity in daily life and features Yoga and the concept of Guru Shishya Parampara in the Indian sports field.
