1.              Introduction:

Cooked Mid Day Meal Programme has been playing a vital role in Uttar Dinajpur district covering more than 6 lakh students every month because it is one of the backward districts of West Bengal. The programme becomes instrumental in protecting children from classroom hunger, increasing school enrolment and attendance. This scheme has improved socialization among children belonging to different socio-economic background, addressing malnutrition, and social empowerment through provision of employment to women and disadvantaged especially members of SHG. 

1.1           Brief history :

 

Initially Mid Day Meal scheme was launched in 2787 nos. schools covering 4,89,980 students in the year of 2005 and It gets massive success in this district and peoples of the district have accepted the scheme with utmost satisfaction. Due to various reasons, migration rate was quite high in this district, resulting in high dropout ratio i.e. 27.20% (as per cohort study 2004). So, this scheme played a vital role to increase the school enrolment as well as lower down malnutrition. Cooked Mid Day Meal (MDM) scheme is centrally sponsored scheme in which students of elementary school of standard I to VIII are provided with cooked meal everyday. Presently, 3006 nos. Primary & Upper Primary school with an enrolment of 6,02,557 nos. of student have been covered under this scheme. Attempts are on for covering more numbers of schools in next financial year.
