Child health is the key to healthy youth and adulthood. Child mortality of a nation signifies level of its healthcare standards. Several diseases of adulthood bear their roots to childhood. It is thus important to improve health status of children and prevent diseases to facilitate their growth into healthy adults. Swarnaprashan is an age-old time tested mode of disease prevention in Ayurveda using oral intake of gold. It dates back to 1000 B.C. and is still practiced in several parts of India. This article reviewed the classical knowledge on the subject, analysed it in light of contemporary science and research, presented its picture of current scenario and future prospects. It is found that swarnaprashan not only prevents several diseases but also helps brain development. It is thus recommended that this art of medicine deserves to be widely publicized and included in national health programs extending its benefits to large masses.
