37 lakh anganwadi kids to get milk, eggs

Bangalore, Nov 19, 2012, DHNS:

The State government will give milk and eggs to as many as 37 lakh children, as supplementary diet, in anganwadi centres across the State, said Women and Child Development Minister Kalakappa Bandi.

Speaking to mediapersons here on Monday, Bandi said the Karnataka government was already giving milk and eggs to “severely malnourished” children across the State.

Now, the proposal was to extend the scheme to children aged between three and six years in all 65,000 anganwadi centres in the State, the minister added. The minister said 200 ml of milk will be given per child per day. However, the number of days eggs would be given in a week is yet to be decided.

The scheme would cost the State exchequer Rs 230 crore per year, if implemented. Deputy commissioners, moreover, will be allowed to decide on the mid-day meal menu in each district depending on the diet specific to the region.
