Instead of Khichdi, the central and Maharashtra government has decided to provide children from class I to VIII with Bhakri (bread) made of Jowar and Millet as a mid-day meal. Along with this, the government will also serve pulses to the students.  

The mid-day meal menu has been changed in order to provide more nutritious food to the children and the same will be implemented from the month of October this year. Food Corporation of India (FCI) will bring forth the changed mid-day meals to all schools. 

Currently, there is a major problem with the mid-day meal service. There have been reports stating that food is not up to the mark and on several occasions, the cook is not available to provide food to the young students. 

The principals of several schools have asserted that those who are hired to prepare the meals are given very less money. This discourages the cooks and thus, they don’t often come to work.

The government is planning to appoint women cooks to prepare mid-deal meals in government schools. Earlier, the male chefs were preparing the meals. However, will this change the situation of mid-day meals in government schools?
