Breakfast program will prove a boon to student’s health and well-being: Vice President

Vice President Faisal Naseem on Tuesday said that the school breakfast program will prove a boon to student’s health and well-being, and also assist them to pay attention and retain information during lessons.

VP Faisal said this while delivering a speech at Thaajudheen school at the ceremonial launching of the nationwide ‘school breakfast program’. The Vice President expounded on some of the key benefits thereof.

The crucial role played by breakfast in children’s development is why this administration has placed such a high priority to implementing this program. Further, it will also alleviate some of the difficulties confronted by parents and guardians, who either because of financial or time constraints, struggle to provide early morning meals to children for whom they are responsible, prior to the start of the school session.

With the successful inauguration of this program today, a total of 57,817 students across 180 islands were provided with a healthy and nutritious breakfast.
