Keonjhar: Ragi laddus will now be distributed among pre-school children under the Integrated Child Development Services (ICDS) scheme in Keonjhar district.

Two rai laddus per week will be provided as morning snacks to pre-school children (between 3 to 6 years of age) enrolled under ICDS in Keonjhar district, over and above the existing menu, from July 2, as decided by the district administration.

The core objective of the initiative is to improve the nutritional status of pre-school children and revive the age-old tradition of millet consumption.

Moreover, the initiative will also provide an additional source of income to women SHGs, an assured price to farmers for ragi and boost local production of ragi and other millets.
