The objectives of the mid day meal scheme are

  1. Improving the nutritional status of children in classes I – VIII in Government, Local Body and Government aided schools, and EGS and AIE centres.
  2. Encouraging poor children, belonging to disadvantaged sections, to attend school more regularly and help them concentrate on classroom activities.
  3. Providing nutritional support to children and teachers of primary and upper Primary stage on regular basis as well as during summer vacation in drought-affected areas.


Promoting school participation

Mid day meals have big effects on school participation, not just in terms of getting more children enrolled in the registers but also in terms of regular pupil attendance on a daily basis. Around 87,724 and 27,415 students for Primary and Upper Primary School have been enrolled.

Preventing classroom hunger

Many children reach school on an empty stomach. Even children who have a meal before they leave for school get hungry by the afternoon and are not able to concentrate – especially children from families who cannot give them a lunch box or are staying a long distance away from the school. Mid day meal can help to overcome this problem by preventing “classroom hunger”. As around 18,121.30 and 6,637.40 Qtls. of rice for Primary and Upper Primary Class are being lifted every year.

Facilitating the healthy growth of children

Mid day meal can also act as a regular source of “supplementary nutrition” for children, and facilitate their healthy growth. IFA tablets have been distributed to all the Schools.

Intrinsic educational value

A well-organised mid day meal can be used as an opportunity to impart various good habits to children (such as washing one’s hands before and after eating), and to educate them about the importance of clean water, good hygiene and other related matters.

Fostering social equality

Mid day meal can help spread egalitarian values, as children from various social backgrounds learn to sit together and share a common meal. In particular, mid day meal can help to break the barriers of caste and class among school. Appointing cooks from Dalit (ST&SC, Widow and Poor Peoples) communities is another way of teaching children to overcome caste prejudices.

Enhancing gender equity

The gender gap in school participation tends to narrow, as the Mid Day Meal Scheme helps erode the barriers that prevent girls from going to school. Mid Day Meal Scheme also provide a useful source of employment for women, and helps liberate workingwomen from the burden of cooking at home during the day. In these and other ways, women and girl children have a special stake in Mid Day Meal Scheme.

Psychological Benefits

Physiological deprivation leads to low self-esteem, consequent insecurity, anxiety and stress. The Mid Day Meal Scheme can help address this and facilitate cognitive, emotional and social development.

Formation of Committee

A Vigilance and Steering-Cum-Monitoring Committee has been formed to monitor all the above said subject to run the Mid Day Meal Programme Smoothly in this District.
