The state's budget for the development of women and children this year has gone up Rs.5.9 billion. Of this, Rs.3 billion is to be spent on the nutritious diet.

"This would not only improve the socio-economic condition of the women in the state but boost the physical, mental and intellectual development of children who suffer malnutrition," he said.
