A Report on Impact of Nutrition through Mid Day Meals: Building a Comprehensive Assessment Model

Deepika Swami, Anjula Gurtoo, and Bita Afsharia. (2020) 01B/04/2020, pp. 01-28

The Report proposes a framework to build a comprehensive mid-day meal (MDM) assessment model. The framework provides the foundation to evaluate the multi-level impacts of the MDM scheme on a child’s nutritional health.
