History

In 1925 a Mid-Day-Meal Programme was introduced for disadvantaged children in Madras Municipal Corporation. By the Mid 1980s three states viz. Gujrat, Kerala & Tamil Nadu and U.P. of Pondicherry had Universalized a Cooked Mid-Day-Meal Programme with own resources for children studying at primary stage. It is an incontrovertible fact that school meal programmes exert a positive influence on enrollment an attendance in schools. A hungry child is less likely to attend schools regularly. Malnutrition adversely affects Universalization of Elementary Education. Even if a Malnourished child does attend schools, she/he finds it difficult to concentrate on and participate in the teaching learning activities in school. Unable to cope, she/he would drop out.
Central Government’s Commitment to a Universal Cooked Meal Programme found reflection in the budget speech of the Union Finance Minister in July, 2004, which stated “the poor want basic education for their children : we shall provide it… we shall also make sure that the child is not hungry while she or he is at school…” the budget speech further promised “the whole of the among collected as cess will be earmarked for education, which will naturally include providing a nutritious cooked mid day meal. If primary education and the nutritious cooked mid day meal scheme can work hand in hand, I believe there will be a new dawn for the poor children in India.”
