using techno-industrial solutions to reduce malnutrition The death of several children from consuming a toxic midday meal in Bihar evoked a great sense of outrage But this outrage willin all probabilitysoon die down Yetthis tragedyas many reports showis the tip of the iceberg Beneath it lies unseen a story of poor service delivery and a lack of commitment India has the dubious distinction of being the epicentre of both undernutrition and malnutritionincluding micronutrient deficienciesbeating even some impoverished sub-Saharan countries Forty two per cent of our children are malnourished The economically poor sections of societywomen and children in particularare the most vulnerable Several reports have pointed out that well intentioned schemes in the hands of the petty bureaucracy and contractors do not serve the purpose of rooting out malnutrition Why are we not seeking more innovative methods of service delivery Why are we reticent about using techno-industrial solutions to deliver food of reasonable quality to our children Who are the actorsand what are their compulsions in not even testing different strategies as pilot schemes to remove malnutrition The most significant contribution to the removal of malnutrition has been made by social activists and NGOs From court litigation to the RTI to high-pitched advocacysocial activists have used every forum to influence government policy For thisthe country should be grateful The ruling partywhether out of sensitivity or social pressurehas recognised their activism and accommodated them in bodies like the National Advisory Council Howeverthese good samaritans are off-track in their prescriptions for implementation Their model of local actionschools and community kitchenshot meals and local food is utopian and borne out of deep-seated ideological antagonism towards techno-industrial interventions Perhaps they want to combine combating malnutrition with the break-up of feudal structures and create local-level social activism to achieve a more egalitarian India The bitter reality is that their aversion to techno-industrial solutions is so high that they are willing to support action through a degenerated bureaucracy and small-time contractors at the cost of losing the cause What about the political class Like social activistspoliticians would also like to do good The UPA government has steadily increased allocations for the midday meal scheme The government has initiated a host of other schemesincluding MGNREGA and more recentlythe food security ordinancefor tackling the problems of poverty But the political class has its own compulsions Politics has become too patronage-based To remain relevantpoliticians have to win elections and they need men and materials to fight elections Such resources can only come from monetary patronage and distributing patronage through contracts Flagship schemes like the midday mealsstarted with good intentionscan degenerate into vehicles to distribute patronage One example is the recruitment of a liquor baron to supply midday meals in Uttar Pradesh What about the role of the petty bureaucracyIndias most pampered class Their jobs are secureand accountability is pathetically low Bureaucrats do not have to fight elections and there are many opportunities to put ones hand in the till The legal system movesbut at an excruciatingly slow pace Long pendencies have emboldened the corrupt to subvert the system Unfortunatelythe obsession of the political class with survival through patronage and the activists preference for action through a degenerated public systemrather than more efficient techno-industrial interventionshave led to a field day for bureaucrats and small-time contractors The most efficient and effective method of combating malnutrition is through industrially produced fortified foods baby food and biscuits or products like chikki Manufactured food can be enriched with soy proteins and fortified with all the necessary micronutrients ironiodinevitamins and minerals India is exporting around 35 million tonnes of soymeal annuallywhich is used as animal feed by rich countrieswhile our own children are fed low protein diets The catch issoymeal has to be industrially treated for human useand this kind of techno-industrial solution is anathema to the ideologues Manufactured products can be stored and do not turn into poison overnight If such food reaches households and schoolsin that ordermalnutrition can be defeated in five years The most critical product is baby food Research shows that the first 2000 days are the most critical in the development of a child Reaching small babies and their mothers is the hardest job and can only be carried out through appropriate products and making these available through the public distribution system At the school levelmaintaining the health of children through products like biscuits and chikki is quite straightforwardmuch more implementable than the currentpatently absurd and unachievable model of cooked meals in each school Remembergovernment-funded schools are unable to provide even clean drinking water and toilets to students Will we be able to implement product-based solutions to rein in malnutrition Only if the political class develops some courage of conviction Unfortunatelythe political class has ceded the high moral ground to social activists of the neo-left and obscurantist right The use of technologywhether in direct cash transfers or fortified foodsholds the key to alleviating destitution Years agoI chanced upon a packet of fortified biscuits being manufactured in India as food aid to Afghanistan Why can this product-based solution not be used for our own children In the 1960sa decision was made to solve Indias milk shortages through a techno-industrial solution in a mission called Operation Flood The decision met with a lot of hostility from left-leaning intellectualsbut today we know it was the correct decision Defeating malnutrition requires a similar approach Agencies like Amul can be involved with the production of fortified foods Indeedit would be foolhardy to not involve the private sectorwhich has extensive experience with fortified foods Malnutrition is a scourge that needs to be tackled In fighting hunger and malnutritionwhat matters is achieving the goal Every legitimate
