Introduction of Annapoorna Protein
Mix for Siddlaghatta Taluk Schools
Annapoorna added a new approach to address the mission of building nutrition by introducing a protein mix that will be given to school children as a part of their morning breakfast.
Since rural school children are seen to have lower levels of nutrition, Annapoorna has come up with this protein mix, which will be mixed with the milk that is being provided by the Government of Karnataka under the Ksheera Bhagya Scheme.
The official launch at the Siddlaghatta Taluk in Chikkaballapur District was done last week, with the Vice Chancellor of Rajiv Gandhi Institute of Higher Medical Sciences and others joining the programme.
All the 250 schools covering 12,000 school children at Siddlaghatta Taluk in Chikkaballapur District will be provided with this Annapoorna protein mix to help develop balanced nutrition for the children. The contents form a wholesome meal which can be beneficial particularly for undernourished and malnourished children.
