Project Report | Dec 20, 2022

By Tanya Alag | Head Resource Mobilization

Food  Nutrition

 

Food  Nutrition as per government norms :


Diet can affect an individual’s health in many ways which in turn have a drastic effect on not
only their physical but academic and social development as well. For children especially,
good nutrition makes great difference in ensuring their physical and mental wellbeing. A
strong yardstick for the same, in case of Child Care Institutions (CCIs) is the nutrition and
diet scale mentioned in the Juvenile Justice (Care and Protection of Children) Act. As per the
JJ Act, some of the key points are:
The children shall be provided four meals in a day, the menu shall be prepared with
the help of a nutritional expert or doctor to ensure balanced diet.
Three varieties of dals to be included alternatively, rice, chapatti, and a green leafy
vegetable.
On the advice of institutional doctor, every sick child shall be provided special diet.
Children may be provided special meals on holidays and festivals.
Extra diet for nourishment like eggs, milk, fruits shall be regularly given to the
children.


Meal Timmings  :
Breakfast – (7:00 AM - 8:00 AM)
Lunch – (1:30 PM - 3:00 PM)
Snacks – (4:00 PM - 5:00 PM)
Dinner – (7:30 PM - 9:30 PM)

Diet at SBT Home :

Breakfast
Food menu is fixed for all week-days, keeping in mind the dietary requirements of this age –group. The menu consists of poha, Dalia, parantha, bread, puri-sabzi with special chole –bhatoore on
Sundays.
All this is accompanied by milk or tea on regular basis.

Lunch
As per the JJ Act, a combination of both rice and chapattis is given. A vegetable and dal are included. On certain days curd is also provided.

Dinner
A combination of rice and chapatti along with a green leafy veggie and dal. Egg curry is made thrice a week, and chicken is cooked monthly. The diet is balanced, and egg /chicken is included that acts as protein supplement.

the team works to ensure that all children get good quality, timely and
nutritious meals which are enhanced as per the doctor’s advice for children facing health
issues. Children’s inputs are taken while making modifications in the diet chart as well as
efforts are made to sensitize children on the importance of healthy food.

Impact of food and nutrition on children
Developments observed
Medical check-ups show that most of the children are growing according to their age
with ideal body weight and height.
There are less cases of illness or sickness in the children’s home.
Children are enjoying the meals, eating together (regular feedback taken)
Children are learning to eat together, share and serve others
Children have developed the habit of praying before the meals (being grateful,
thankful)
Since meals are served at a particular time, children are acquiring a sense of having
meals on time (punctuality)

Testimonies

Neelam (food incharge, Udaan Home)
“Morning breakfast is provided to all children before 7:00 AM on school days
and before 8:00 AM on holidays. The menu is fixed, but at times we make
changes depending on the weather and availability of ingredients.”

Sarita (medical social worker)
“Special diet includes seasonal fruits, eggs and milk, given as advised
by the doctor. It is given on regular basis. Considerable improvement in
the health status of many girls is visible and recorded.”

Child, Shobha:
“My sudden weight loss and weakness led to a routine
medical check–up wherein I was diagnosed with
Tuberculosis. Apart from medication, I was advised to take
milk daily along with fruits. This special diet has helped me,
as now my weight has improved.”
