Healthier school meals in Karnataka India

Healthier meals in schools throughout Karnataka, India

In partnership with Resolve to Save Lives, Vision for Social Development piloted a program in Karnataka, India in November 2021 that successfully reduced the amount of salt added to school meals provided under the PM POSHAN Scheme (previously ‘Mid-day Meal’ Scheme ). The successful program will now be expanded statewide, giving children across Karnataka access to nutritious school meals with less salt—a known risk factor for high blood pressure, even among young people.
