As per the vision of the Governor to provide free and nutritious breakfast to the Raj Bhavan School children, the Sri Satya Sai Seva Samiti organisations came forward to offer free breakfast at the Raj Bhavan Annam facility.
After opening the Raj Bhavan Annam canteen, the Governor joined the school children and the Raj Bhavan sanitation workers and had the breakfast along with them.
The Governor and her husband, eminent Nephrologist, Dr. P. Soundararajan personally served the breakfast to the students and the sanitation workers before joining them for the breakfast.
The students and the sanitation workers looked pleasantly surprised to have breakfast sitting beside the Governor and her husband.
She personally went round the canteen facility and interacted with all those children and sanitation workers, who were having breakfast, and enquired about the quality of the breakfast, which they said, was very tasty and nutritious.
The Governor stated that having a good nutritious breakfast was vital for the physical, cognitive and academic development of the school going children.
“Providing breakfast with vital nutrients is necessary for the school going children for their all-round development. I felt this (providing nutritious breakfast) is more important during this pandemic period to improve their immunity and help them grow better physically and mentally, and as well as help them do better in academics,” Dr. Tamilisai Soundararajan added.
School children and sanitation workers termed this gesture of providing free breakfast was motherly initiative from Governor, who they said was taking care of them as a mother and as a doctor.
Referring to some studies, the Governor said that most of the lunch boxes of school going children were having potato chips, and other junk food items that are not really healthy.
We must ensure that the children get required nutrients, vitamins and minerals through their food and many traditional foods do have such vital nutrients.
Governor thanked the Prime Minister Narendra Modi ji for the implementation of Poshan Abhiyan to ensure the supply of nutritious food to the children and end the malnutrition in the country. (Maxim News)
