During the months of March, April and May, over 250 children studying in Kindergarten (KG) were served breakfast at SMB Fatima Jinnah Government Girls School. Over a 100 of these children had been newly admitted to KG 1 and saw the practice of school-provided meals at breakfast for the first time. We are pleased to report that their parents were overwhelmed by the program and expressed their utmost gratitude and happiness with the facility.

New additions to the summer menu included fruit chaat (a kind of local fruit salad), potato cutlets and French toast. To beat the scorching heat, a traditional lemon drink Limo-Pani was also served to students several times during the day. Apart from the changes for the summer, bread, jam, butter, cake, egg, biscuits, sandwiches and wheat porridge etc. remained a part of the rotating menu, along with the permanent feature of milk which was served daily with breakfast.

In April, the school conducted a series of Parents’ Orientation sessions for parents of children enrolled in all the grades. Parents of KG students spoke about the breakfast program and really appreciated it. At this point, the school management encouraged the parents to promote the habit of consuming healthy food at home. Parents were also instructed not to pack chips, biscuits or other packaged fast food items in their children's snack-boxes. They were informed of the menu of breakfast provided to children at school and asked to make an effort to send a home-cooked snack instead of giving their young children money to buy snacks from the school canteen, if they felt that additional snacks were necessary.

We thank you for your continued support and hope you will continue to make these nutritious school meals possible!
