MP Government Allocated Rs. 3 Billion For Women-Children Nutrition

The Madhya Pradesh government has allocated Rs.3 billion for providing a nutritious diet to undernourished women and children in the state, Rs.1.9 billion more than the previous year.

The main beneficiary would be children, adolescent girls and expectant and nursing mothers who will get the supplementary nutritious diet from mother and child welfare centres called anganwadis, said a women and child welfare department official.

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.
