  • Yogi Adityanath, the Chief Minister of Uttar Pradesh, has launched the “Hot Cooked Food Government Scheme.”
  • The major goal of launching the plan is to ensure that children aged 3 to 6 years have access to nutritious food.

Adityanath also laid the groundwork for 3,401 Anganwadi centers in 35 districts, costing an estimated 403 crore. He also dedicated a transit hostel for police officers at the Ayodhya Reserve Police Lines.

According to the CM, the state has over 1.90 lakh Anganwadi facilities, with over two crore registered beneficiaries. He stated that the Hot Cooked Meal Scheme would assist 80 lakh youngsters aged 3 to 6 years.

Adityanath told the Anganwadi workers and assistants present at the program, “Children are a form of God.” 

You are lucky because, like Yashoda in the Dwapara Yuga, who cared for Krishna as a kid, you are serving and taking responsibility for the food and health of hundreds of Kanhas, contributing to the foundation of a strong India. It is your good fortune that you have been given this opportunity.”

The CM said that there had previously been many questions concerning nutrition initiatives. However, great progress has been made in the last 6-7 years: anemia in children has decreased, and significant progress has been recorded in underweight children, he stated, adding that the newborn mortality rate has also decreased.

He did, however, say that there was still potential for development. “Healthy children are the responsibility of not only the Women and Child Development department but also the Panchayati Raj and Urban Development department.”

During the session, he screened a short film about the Hot Cooked Meal initiative and gave ‘Poshan bhi Padhayi bhi’ kits to Anganwadi staff and volunteers. In addition, the CM gave Shree Anna nutrition plates to children at Anganwadi centers.

The Department of Kid Development Services and Nutrition would provide an additional incentive of 0.50 rupees per kid per working day to workers under the PM POSHAN project to facilitate the preparation of hot-cooked food under the new initiative and midday meals.

The corresponding Anganwadi helpers will be responsible for delivering meals to Anganwadi centers within a 200-meter radius of primary and upper elementary schools and for distributing hot and fresh meals to children.

Vijay Kiran Anand, the director of Midday Meal and the director general of school education, has issued directives on this subject to all basic education officers. 

According to the instructions, the Department of Child Development Services and Nutrition would give food grains and materials like pulses, vegetables, oil, spices, and so on for producing food under the new program.

A special emphasis is placed on cleanliness.

Anganwadi workers will be in charge of transporting food produced in primary school kitchens to Anganwadi centers and serving it to children. They will also be in charge of maintaining cleanliness. 

This approach will also apply to Anganwadi centers within 200 meters of primary and upper primary schools. Anganwadi workers will also ensure that all utensils used in food preparation are clean and that all children’s hands are cleansed before and after meals.
