The “Mukhyamantri Sampoorna Pushti Yojana” was unveiled on Thursday by Odisha’s chief minister, Naveen Patnaik, in an effort to address the nutritional requirements of the state’s mothers, adolescent girls, and children. In addition to it, the Chief Minister also unveiled the “Pada Pushti Yojana”. This program provides dry food supplements for pregnant women and new mothers, as well as nutritional supplements for all female teenagers between the ages of 15 and 19. Additionally, preparations have been made to provide entire meals to extremely malnourished children, eggs and vitamin-added “chhatua” (roasted gram flour) to children who are moderately underweight, and whole meals to children who are very underweight.
The ‘Pada Pushti Yojana’ will deliver top-notch cooked food to youngsters in rural and tribal areas in their enclaves and villages. Speaking at a meeting at the Lok Seva Bhawan Convention Center, the Chief Minister said that success and nutrition are closely related. As a result, the CM asserted, improved nutrition will help us reach our development objective.
“The family’s healthy diet can only be provided by the mother. Mothers are therefore essential to the program’s success. For the success of this program, both our Mission Shakti volunteers and Anganwadi staff members share a significant amount of responsibility. The first state in the nation to create a nutrition budget for 2020–21 is Odisha. Pregnant women and young babies in the state are properly cared for under the Mamata Yojana. The Mukhyamantri Sampoorna Pushti Yojana would help this endeavour even more, the chief minister said.
