New Delhi, Mar 10 (ANI): Union Human Resource Development (HRD) Minister Kapil Sibal on Wednesday in a written reply in the Lok Sabha said the government has made elaborate arrangements through the guidelines for Mid Day Meal Scheme (MDMS) to ensure that children get good quality meals.

Sibal added that two to three adults, including at least one teacher, taste the mid-day meal before it is served to the children.

Under the scheme, the government has fixed 450 calories and 12 grams of protein intake for primary and 700 calories and 20 grams of protein intake for upper primary children, claimed Sibal.

"The energy and protein requirement is met through food cooked," he added. (ANI)
