Door Step School and Decimal Foundation partner to start the 'Breakfast Revolution' in Pune.
Children in India are more malnourished than children in sub-Saharan Africa (UNICEF). 1 of 3 malnourished kids in the world is from India. This is despite India having the world's largest Midday meal program, serving 120 million kids every day. Midday meals are operated via thousands of vendors, are not standard, lack taste and nutritive value. The solution - supplementing midday meals with a great early morning breakfast!
The Breakfast Revolution aims to provide tasty, healthy, standardized and safe power breakfast for kids. Children in low income schools receive a glass of Soya milk sweetened, flavored (chocolate, vanilla, mango, strawberry) and fortified (Vitamin A, D, Calcium) along with a packet of double fortified biscuits (fortified with iron and folic acid). Each breakfast has GUARANTEED 300 calories, 6-8 grams of protein, 50% of daily requirement of Vitamin A,D, Calcium, iron and folic acid.
Door Step School thanks the Decimal Foundation and our donors for making this initiative possible. !
