Madhya Pradesh CM bans eggs in anganwadis

Shivraj Singh Chouhan's decision to stop the distribution of boiled eggs or egg curries in anganwadis in tribal districts may have raised eyebrows, but the Jain community plans to felicitate the Madhya Pradesh CM for respecting their sentiments. Chouhan's decision came recently after the women and child development department moved a proposal to serve ready-to-eat breakfast for children in the 3-6 age group in anganwadis run under the Integrated Child Development Services (ICDS) programme. Department officials had emphasized that an easy way to check malnutrition in the tribal districts of Mandla, Alirajpur and Hoshangabad would be to serve boiled eggs. But some organizations promoting vegetarianism had opposed the proposal.
