NEW DELHI, JAN 13 (AGENCIES) | Publish Date: 1/13/2021 12:18:14 PM IST

Supreme Court on Wednesday said that children are the future of the country and any miserly attitude in providing them nutrition would deprive the country of its true potential.

The top court directed all States to open Anganwadi Kendra, situated outside the containment zones, before January 31, and ensure pregnant women, lactating mothers, and children got nutritional support as per the statutory requirement.

“Children are the next generation and therefore, unless and until children and women have nutritious food, it will affect the next generation and ultimately the country as a whole,” a bench of Justices Ashok Bhushan, R Subhash Reddy and M R Shah said.

SC also said all States should evolve as an appropriate mechanism for supervision so that dues are received by beneficiaries for whom schemes are in place. 

“No one can doubt that children are the future of our country and if there is some stinginess in providing them with adequate nutrition, India as a whole is deprived in future of taking the benefit of their potential,” the bench said.
