Announcement of Breakfast Scheme in Tamil Nadu

The state of Tamil Nadu is all set to become the 1st state in the country of India to provide breakfast in govt. schools, along with the mid-day meal. The Chief Minister of Tamil Nadu, MK Stalin marked the completion of his 1st year in power with the declaration of 5 schemes, involving a breakfast scheme for students who are studying standards 1 to 5 in the state.

This nutritional scheme is purely based on a public health study by the govt. on the alarming situation of malnourished children in the state.

“There was a study that expressed that various children who start early were skipping breakfast. They miss breakfast not only for the distance they have to travel but also for the misery and problems at home. So we are launching this, for the students up to standard 5, in a selected number of schools — in corporations, municipalities and rural areas — before making it a statewide scheme,” Stalin declared.

Stalin further said this nutritional scheme being declared by the government is to “make sure that all children in Tamil Nadu are not malnourished.”

Some Facts: The state of Tamil Nadu was the pioneer of the midday meal scheme as the 1st initiative to give food to children had been taken by the Madras Municipal Corporation around the year 1920. And, in post-Independence India, the state was again the pioneer, with CM K Kamaraj rolling out a school feeding strategy in the year 1956. This scheme was modified by the union government in the shape of a midday meal scheme.

Apart from the breakfast scheme, Stalin also released a new school of excellence programme, built on the same project by the Delhi government. This project will also be implemented in all corporations in the state at the cost of Rs 150 crore to modernize the foundation and infrastructure and invent a nice and new learning environment for school students.

I think they are doing to children’s health and education. It is a necessary step.
