At the event, the Regional Administrator – Mr. Shivaraj Meena said, “Annapoorna Trust has brought out a wonderful Morning Nutrition programme for the benefit of children. Request each one of you to partake SaiSure every day, make the best use of the opportunity and come out as healthier beings. Some of the children would get a small packet of other health and nutrition mixes available in the market, to school to mix with the milk provided by the government. Now those children will save at least Rs.100/- every month instead of spending on health and energy powders available commercially. We also request the Trust to start for lower and upper kindergarten children in the entire Puducherry Union Territory.”

Total of 27,575 children across 267 schools in the entire Puducherry Union Territory – Puducherry, Karaikal, Mahe & Yanam districts will receive SaiSure Multi Nutrient Health Mix on all 5 days a week. This health mix is scientifically designed to provide vital nutrients, meets the protein, vitamin, and mineral requirements, and is designed to meet 50% of the recommended daily allowance (RDA) of most of the Micro-Nutrients, acting as a wholesome meal in itself. With the Trust’s constant endeavour to ensure that no child goes to school hungry ever, SaiSure is indeed the solution to the ‘hidden hunger’ of several children.
