  1. With the revision of cost norms, food models were revised in consultation with stakeholders to provide for calories / protein/RDA as per GOI norms and to ensure that the Supplementary food is acceptable to the target groups.
  2. In brief, the supplementary nutrition provided for the various categories of target groups is as follows:
    1. Pregnant & Lactating women get “one full meal” under Arogyalaksmiwith one egg, 200 ml of milk, rice, dal and vegetable every day. 7 months to 3 years children receive weaning food i.e the fortified Balamrutham packet of 2 ½ kgs and 16 eggs in a month. This is distributed as THR to the mothers on 1st of every month (i.e on NHD-1)
    2. 3 to 6 years children as part of Pre-school get a hot meal of rice, dal, vegetables,egg, and Nutri snacks/chana dal/daily. Malnourished children i.e SUW/SAM/MAM children between 7 months to 3 years are given additional supplementation of 1 egg, 100 ml milk, mini meal+ extra oil daily at the Anganwadi centre.
    3. Malnourished children i.e SUW/SAM/MAM between 3 to 6 years are given additional supplementation of 1 egg, 100 ml milk, oil ( with hot meal), 50 gms of Balamrutham daily at the Anganwadi centre.
  3. Feeds for Malnourished children of age groups 7 months to 3 years and 3 to 6 years, are supervised and certain feeds are given at the AWC itself. Hence the additional supplementation are made part of model menus which are appropriate for the malnourished children. Detailed guidelines issued for the “Special care and Supervised feeding” of malnourished children upto 5 years include methodology of identification and categorization of children as Severely Underweight (SUW)/ Severe Acute Malnutrition(SAM)/ Moderate Acute Malnutrition (MAM) and the details of the Model Menus.
