Telangana introduced the “Chief Minister’s Breakfast Initiative” on Friday with the goal of providing breakfast to approximately 2.3 million government school students. The scheme was officially inaugurated by Telangana Ministers, including KT Rama Rao, at various locations.
Minister Rama Rao emphasized that the breakfast provided is highly nutritious and tastes excellent. He urged officials to maintain food quality standards and regularly conduct random quality tests.
While a similar program exists in Tamil Nadu for students in classes I to V, Telangana Chief Minister K Chandrasekhar Rao expanded it to include students up to class 10. Initially scheduled to start on October 24, the launch was moved up.
The scheme applies to all students in government and local body schools on regular school days. It aims to address concerns about the nutritional well-being of schoolchildren and ease the burden on working mothers, according to a government order.
