Gondia: In the tribal areas of Anganwad, the Village Child Development Center will now provide high calorie and protein-rich nutritious food to infertile malnourished children. Since this walnut feed will be provided by the national suppliers, the local feeding will be discontinued so far. Under this, the government will spend an additional 75 paise per day on diet.
In order to reduce the number of malnourished children in the state, the government decision to start the Center for Rural Child Development in the tribal area was issued by the Department of Women and Child Development on August 11 last year. It was suggested to supply food to the government. However, the decision was postponed due to some saving groups running against the court in this regard.
Even though child development centers were started in tribal-majority districts, the food required for them was made locally.
Now after winning the judicial battle, the letter that the food supply will be provided to the suppliers is sent to all tribal districts.
There are currently 575 severely malnourished children in the district. New food will be provided to the state every November. Women and Child Development Department officials expressed hope that this new diet will reduce the number of malnourished children.

This new diet, prepared by the World Health Organization and UNICEF’s recommendations, will contain all types of vitamins, calcium, sodium, magnesium, folic acid, iodine, fatty acid, sugar and groundnut. The child will be eaten by the untimely malnourished child at the Anganwadi at least three times a day by wearing a specially prepared specialty wok. The remaining wallet will be given to the parent to take the child home. The next day, the empty wires will be collected from the parents concerned in Anganwadi.
