Mid-Day Meal Management

  • Nikita Pal, Anushka Sharma,Kashika Hingorani
  • Mid-day meal is a programme to feed government school children but it often ends up wasted and it is mostly unhygienic. Sometimes the food does not reach the schools.There is no system to track if the necessary nutrients are present in the food or not. There is no system for rating by the children who are the end users. Also the raw materials get spoiled with rodents and moisture. There is no transparency on how the food is served to the children.

  • Authorities who do not track the system properly. 

    People who are supposed to take care of the raw materials do not do their duties.

    Children do not have any rating system to rate the food they get and they also do not get a proper balanced diet.

    Have mailed the authorities ,expecting  a reply soon. 

  • Before: no tracking and rating system, no transparency regarding the storage systems, food cooked, food wasted.

    First of all, there is no rating system using which the children can rate the food according to the taste and quality which directly affects if students are happy and eating the food or not.

    There is no track of how raw materials are stored. They can be stale and eaten by rodents which can affect the quality and health of children. There is no tracking system on much food goes waste

    After: Rating system, more transparency

    With the introduction of biometrics for attendance by the government, it would be easy to record the rating.

    With instalments of moisture and motion tracking systems, the food can be stored in a better way.

    With the knowledge of the amount of food wasted, the surplus food can be given to NGO's to help the needy.

    With more transparency, there will be no scope of corruption.
