Morning Nutrition Program for Rural Students
Addressing Nutritional Needs through Morning Nutrition: Extensive research has demonstrated the significant impact of morning nutrition on the well-being of children, who are the fundamental pillars of a healthy future for our world. The consumption of a nutritious morning meal plays a crucial role in supporting their physical and mental health, fostering academic achievement, and facilitating cognitive development. To combat the pervasive issue of malnutrition and under-nutrition in India's rural and underprivileged communities, the Sri Sathya Sai Annapoorna Trust has launched the flagship program, "Annapoorna Morning Nutrition Program." The primary objective of this initiative is to eradicate under-nutrition nationwide by providing free, wholesome morning meals to school-going children, guided by the vision of ensuring no child attends school on an empty stomach.
Currently, the Annapoorna trust serves over 12,00,000 children in remote and diverse locations across India, spanning 15000+ schools in 23 States and 4 Union Territories. Following the morning assembly and prayers, the children receive nourishing meals before their classes commence. These meals consist of cooked breakfast, milk, bananas, nutritious cookies, or a balanced health supplement mixed with milk. These provisions effectively alleviate hunger, enhance attention span, and improve the academic and overall health profiles of the children. The breakfast menus are carefully curated by expert nutritionists to meet the specific calorie requirements of growing children.
Recognizing the need for nutrient-dense foods, especially for populations at risk of undernutrition, the Trust aims to make nutrient-rich foods more affordable and accessible through equitable, nutrition-sensitive food policies. It emphasizes the importance of providing nutrient-dense foods to infants, young children, pregnant and breastfeeding women, and endeavors to enhance nutritional knowledge among caregivers.

Theory of Change
Problem Statement: India is home to the largest number of children in the world. But unfortunately, not all our children have access to well-balanced and nutritious food. Solution Offered: The Annapoorna Morning Nutrition Programme was conceived as a solution to this. In July 2012, a handful of individuals came together and started the program by serving breakfast to about 50 children at a school in Doddabele, near Kengeri, Bengaluru. Over the years, more schools and children were added to the breakfast chain. Current Reach: Today, more than 650 Annapoorna volunteers serve Morning Nutrition to 1.2 million students every day across more than 15,000 centres spread all over the Country. Till date, more than 250 million servings have been provided. Currently, we are providing Morning Nutrition in 23 States and 4 Union Territories It primarily oversees all the activities and obligations of the breakfast and allied programs.
