Balod's innovative initiative to provide hot cooked meals to pregnant, lactating mothers who are unable to visit Anganwadis
Balod | 12-Oct-2022 1105
Nearly 650 women are getting access to nutritious food through home tiffin services
Doorstep delivery of freshly prepared meals under 'Mukhyamantri Suposhan Yojana'
Balod has undertaken a unique initiative to provide hot cooked meals through 'home tiffin service' to the women who are unable to visit Anganwadis due to any circumstances. This innovative initiative has been taken under the state government's ambitious 'Mukhyamantri Suposhan Yojana' launched three years ago by Chief Minister Shri Bhupesh Baghel to realize the vision of 'Gadhbo Suposhit Chhattisgarh' (Building a healthy Chhattisgarh).
In a bid to make this scheme a success in the Balod district, freshly prepared meals are being delivered to 650 women who are unable to visit Anganwadis at their doorstep. The move aims to ensure that pregnant and lactating mothers get nutritious food to keep themselves healthy. This has been done on the initiative of Balod district collector Shri Kuldeep Sharma to ensure effective implementation of the scheme in the district. Directions were given to the District Program Officer of the Women and Child Development Department to provide doorstep delivery of freshly prepared meals to the women who are unable to come to the Anganwadi centers. Acting swiftly on the same, hot-cooked meals are being provided to all pregnant and lactating mothers.
Meanwhile, the scheme was launched on October 2, 2019, to provide healthy and nutritious meals to malnourished children under 6 years of age and to anemic women and adolescent girls between 15 to 49 years of age. Since its inception till now, nearly 2.10 lakh children (50 per cent) have been freed from malnutrition in the state. In addition, about one lakh women are now anemia-free.
A nutritious diet is extremely important for pregnant and lactating mothers. Lack of nutritious food causes anemia and malnutrition in mothers and children. Physical weakness increases the risk of getting infected with various diseases. Keeping this in view, local nutritious food and hot cooked meals are being provided in the Anganwadis under this scheme.
