State Government of Uttar Pradesh is planning to introduce regional flavours in servings of Mid Days Meals (MDM) in all government schools across the state.
For implementing this, the state will be divided into 4 parts, and the students will be served local dishes of their region. At present “Kichri” and “Tehri” are served under MDM scheme to over 1,50,000 students up to 8th class in the schools. After the launch of this new initiative, delicacies like Bati Chokha, Rajma and Kheer will also be served depending on the region.
The feedback of the students will also be sent to the central government for improvements and refinement in the implementation process of MDM scheme.
