Awareness for school lunch programme

Children eating a meal as part of the school lunch programme at a classroom.
Children in their growing age has so much activities to participate and food plays important role to make every efforts possible in academic as well as in extra curriculum activities. The school lunch programme initiated by united state federal law  at the name of National school lunch programme in1946.
Nutrition standard for the National school lunch programme and National school breakfast program were updated in 2012 and signed by barack Obama.
In America, school consider to fulfill the nutritional requirements of students by providing them balanced diet in School and children get same kind of meal during lunch.Now In America they prepare meal accordingly to fulfill the needs of micronutrients because some basic micronutrients are necessary for children to maintain a good status of learning.
In India some anganwari in villages provide meal but that people not aware the importance of diet in child's life so you cnt watch the food they provide to kids. Government must arrange some awareness program for the village and some private schools to aware the parents and people for the importance of nutrition in child's life. Research shows that we are not giving our kids in School the same level of quality and safety as you get in many fast foods restaurants

My Next Step

A rare conversation between Ramkrishna Paramahansa & Swami Vivekanand

Swami Vivekanand:- I can’t find free time. Life has become hectic.

 Ramkrishna Paramahansa:- Activity gets you busy. But productivity gets you free.

Swami Vivekanand:-  Why has life become complicated now?

Ramkrishna Paramahansa:-  Stop analyzing life.. It makes it complicated. Just live it.

Swami Vivekanand:-  Why are we then constantly unhappy?

 Ramkrishna Paramahansa:- Worrying has become your
 habit. That’s why you are not happy.

Swami Vivekanand:-  Why do good people always suffer?

Ramkrishna Paramahansa:- Diamond cannot be polished without friction. Gold cannot be purified without fire. Good people go through trials, but don’t suffer.
With that experience their life becomes better, not bitter.

Swami Vivekanand:-  You mean to say such experience is useful?

Ramkrishna Paramahansa:- Yes. In every term, Experience is a hard teacher. She gives the test first and the lessons afterwards.

Swami Vivekanand:-  Because of so many problems, we don’t know where we are heading…

Ramkrishna Paramahansa:- If you look outside you will not know where you are heading. Look inside. Eyes provide sight. Heart provides the way.

Swami Vivekanand:-  Does failure hurt more than moving in the right direction?

Ramkrishna Paramahansa:- Success is a measure as decided by others. Satisfaction is a measure as decided by you.

Swami Vivekanand:-   In tough times, how do you stay motivated?

Ramkrishna Paramahansa:- Always look at how far you have come rather than how far you have to go. Always count your blessing, not what you are missing.

Swami Vivekanand:-   What surprises you about people?

Ramkrishna Paramahansa:- When they suffer they ask, “why me?” When they prosper, they never ask “Why me?”

Swami Vivekanand:-  How can I get the best out of life?

Ramkrishna Paramahansa:- Face your past without regret. Handle your present with confidence. Prepare for the future without fear.

Swami Vivekanand:-  One last question. Sometimes I feel my prayers are not answered.

Ramkrishna Paramahansa:- There are no unanswered prayers.  Keep the faith and drop the fear.  Life is a mystery to solve, not a problem to resolve. Trust me. Life is wonderful if you know how to live.
