An NGO is tackling hunger right at the source, by providing three meals a day to children under three, together with daycare.

The Jan Swasthya Sahyog (JSS) has been running creches or phulwaris since 2009, where children under the age of three can stay for eight hours.

Children get a diet of khichdi (a salty porridge made of rice and lentils), sattu (a mix of cereal-pulse-oilseed), iron supplements, and eggs twice a week.

Also, they are taught to maintain hygiene. For more details, read: The Better India
