HOT COOKED BREAKFAST WITH CUSTOM-DESIGNED MENUS
What is a healthy breakfast? Nutrition experts say that a healthy breakfast should consist of a variety of foods, for example, milk, whole grains, proteins, fruits and vegetables.
Our breakfast menus, therefore, have been specifically designed to provide a variety of nutrients that will help keep students energetic and ready to learn until lunchtime. The menu is meticulously planned, making sure that the breakfast is wholesome in its nutrition quotient and meets the quality standards.
The entire week’s breakfast makes up roughly about 20-30 percent of the weekly nutrition requirement of a school-going child.
We keep a check on quality of ingredients by working closely with the local vendors, who provide milk, vegetables and fruits. Decentralized sourcing has helped us economically empower the villagers as well as actively engage them in participating in their children’s growth and development.We expect the villagers to spearhead the Annapoorna program in their schools on their own after a few years.
Cooks, who are the backbone of the entire program, are carefully selected so that the breakfast is rich in both nutrients and taste. To ensure sustained quality of the food served, our volunteers regularly taste the food and encourage feedback from the children and school authorities.
