Cash may replace food in nutrition scheme 2.9.2017 DNA: Top News
The Centre is toying with the idea of giving cash benefits instead of nutritional benefits to Integrated Child Development Scheme (ICDS) beneficiaries, including malnourished children and pregnant and lactating mothers. Government think tank National Institution for Transforming India (NITI) Aayog had mooted the idea and now the Women and Child Development Ministry has forwarded the proposal, along with a few others, to the Prime Minister's Office (PMO). If approved, the project will first be implemented on a pilot basis in a few districts. The other suggestions included increasing the per day benefit emolument for each beneficiary. It has been revealed that before making the recommendations, the NITI Aayog had carried out a set of consultations with representatives of states, health experts, NGOs, and WCD and Health ministries, late last year.

Anganwadi centres oppose Matru Poorna, stage protest 9.8.2017 deccanherald.com
Anganwadi workers and assistants staged a protest at Nehru Maidan in Mangaluru on Wednesday against the introduction of "Matru Poorna" scheme in Dakshina Kannada district. The scheme aimed at providing nutritious food to pregnant women to fight against malnutrition and prevent maternal and infant mortality. Taluk Sahitya Parishat president Vijayalakshmi B Shetty said that the scheme was not suitable for Dakshina Kannada district. "Pregnant women are taken care at home in the district by providing them nutritious food. In such a scenario, women will not go to anganwadi centres to have food. Further, anganwadi centres are functioning from a small building where there is lack of facilities to cook food for pregnant women," Vijayalakshmi said. Anganwadi Workers and Assistants' Association state president Jayalakshmi B R said the scheme was beneficial for a backward district such as Raichur and would not be successful in Dakshina Kannada district. "Will working pregnant women visit anganwadi centre to have ...
