Background It was launched on 15 August 1995. It is only other scheme other than ICDS which targets the nutritional needs of children and it covers the school going children, largely from the age of 5yrs. It has the advantage of promoting enrolment and preventing children from dropping out of school. Nodal department of MDM differs across states.

MID DAY MEAL Target- children of Primary and Middle School. Entitlements-  Boost universalisation of primary education by increasing enrolment, retention and attendance  Improve the nutritional status of children in primary and middle classes

Passed through various revisions The National Programme of Nutritional Support to Primary Education (NP-NSPE), commonly known as the Mid Day Meal Scheme (MDMS) provides a free cooked meal to every child in classes I-V of government, government aided and local body schools, and also children studying in centres run under the Education Guarantee Scheme (EGS) and Alternative and Innovative Education (AIE) Scheme. This is a primarily a centrally assisted scheme with the state governments contributing partially towards the cooking costs.

Passed through various revisions The Planning Commission requested State Governments in December 2003 to earmark a minimum of 15% of Additional Central Assistance under the Pradhan Mantri Gramodaya Yojana (PMGY) towards cooking cost under the mid day meal scheme.

Revised in 2004…. The mid-day meal scheme was therefore revised in September 2004 to provide cooked mid day meal with 300 calories and 8–12 grams of protein to all children studying in classes I – V in Government and aided schools and EGS(Education guarantee scheme) centres wherein in addition to free supply of food grains, the revised scheme provided Central Assistance for the following items: Cooking cost @ RS. 1 per child per day Transport cost. Management cost @ 2 % Provision of MDM during Summer Vacations in Drought Prone areas

 Find out what is happening In your area regarding the implementation of Sc order.  Surveys and informal enquires can be done for understanding the situation.  Involve the gram sabha and other institutions like PTA, vigilance committee, mahila mandals and all concerned persons of the village in the enforcement of SC orders.  In case of any violation of the SC order starts at local level.  If it does not work try to approach the concerned officers.  If case of no responses approach to collector because collector is bound to register your complaint under the SC order.  The public hearing is one of the good option to draw attention of the public as well as the government.  If no action was taken on your complaint move to the advisor of the SC. Redressal mechanism

Impact so far Universalisation of MDMS. Now it reaches to Middle school Children. Increased budgetary allocation for MDMS. Right to Food, Right to Life and Social harmony works together………

Some more Facts of India 13 Million Children were covered under the MDM Scheme. One recent study estimates that the provision of a mid-day meal in the local school is associated with a 50 per cent reduction in the proportion of girls who are out of school. Still 70.56 lakhs children are out of the school . 35,30,962 girls are not getting the benefit of the school.
