The school lunch program, designed to reduce the prevalence of mal-nutrition, provides a nourishing noon meal for children, so that at least one third of their calorie and protein requirements are met. A healthy midday meal can help to protect children from hunger, provide supplementary nutrition and contribute towards right education by facilitating regular school attendance and enhancing children's learning abilities. Midday meals have become an integral part of the school "routine" in Tamil Nadu.

Abstract


The school lunch program, designed to reduce the prevalence of mal-nutrition, provides a nourishing noon meal for children, so that at least one third of their calorie and protein requirements are met. A healthy midday meal can help to protect children from hunger, provide supplementary nutrition and contribute towards right education by facilitating regular school attendance and enhancing children's learning abilities. Midday meals have become an integral part of the school "routine" in Tamil Nadu.
