Center told states, 'No compromise on the quality of mid-day meal'

New Delhi: Questions have often been raised about the quality of mid-day meals being run in government schools across the country. It is a centrally sponsored scheme. Therefore, the central government has now become serious about the questions arising on this. The central government has started brainstorming to make this whole system more robust. Preparations are on to discuss this with the states soon. At present, all states have been asked to give suggestions.

In a letter to the state school education secretaries, the ministry has made it clear that there should be no compromise on the quality of food grains received from FCI. Allotment should be taken only after checking its quality. Schools have also been asked to test the food grains available. According to officials associated with the ministry, this step has been taken after receiving complaints of poor food grains supplied in schools in many states.

In the sequel to the proposed discussion with the states, some strict steps can also be seen regarding the quality of food available to children in schools. In order to make children's food nutritious and to mold them in the community environment, the kitchen garden has been made mandatory in every government schools. Although it was started as an experiment in some schools, now it has been made necessary for all schools, given the increasing interest in schools.
