Many factors affect the food intake of the children.

Akshaya Patra diligently ensures that its food for education is wholesome and meets the prescribed nutrition levels as per the scheme. At the same time the organisation is also meticulous in studying child’s behaviour in regards to food.

Akshaya Patra has been collecting feedback on its implementation of Mid-Day Meal Scheme, from teachers and children and as per the feedback it has taken many initiatives. As the organisation learnt that the food for education, it serves, has to be of more variety, many new recipes have been introduced depending on the regions of operations. None of the recipes repeat twice within a week.

The menu items more liked by children are served more frequently and vice versa. All this is to ensure that the nutrition food for children’s appetite, prepared by Akshaya Patra is well thought of. The menu items are specific to the preferences and staple grain of the immediate locale. As it is established that the food has direct impact on cognition as well and aids to better learning ability; the concept of food for education drives the organisation constantly and it hopes to bring food that nourishes the children physically and mentally.
