Chennai, Sep 8 (SocialNews.XYZ) Tamil Nadu government's prestigious breakfast scheme for primary students of government schools in the state is likely to be launched on September 15, which is the birth anniversary of DMK founder and former Chief Minister, late C.N. Annadurai.

Training sessions are being held for the self-help group members to cook nutritious and hygienic breakfast.

The scheme is to be implemented in 1,545 schools in municipal and rural areas of Tamil Nadu. The scheme will benefit 1.14 lakh students in the first phase.

The menu of breakfast includes rava upma, semiya upma with sambar, rava khichdi, semiya khichdi and rava Pongal.

The breakfast will be served from Monday to Friday. A dessert will also be served to students on Fridays which will be either rava kesari or semiya kesari.
