Children in the age group of 6 months to 6 years, pregnant women and nursing women are given nutritional support for 300 days a year. Each beneficiary is given nutritious food as part of Hot Cooked Meals (HCM) and Take Home Ration (THR) under SNP.Providing SNP is one of the primary tasks of the Anganwadi centres.

This is in addition to the normal hot cooked meal (Rs. 8 per child / day) provided at AWC for children in the age group of 3 to 6 years.
Decentralisation of Supplementary Nutrition Programme
The Supreme Court issued orders regarding decentralisation of procurement by eliminating the involvement of contractors and encouraging the engagement of local SHGs and mahila mandals in supply and distribution of THR. In accordance with the orders of the Hon’ble Supreme Court, Government of Odisha decentralized the Supplementary Nutrition programme in April 2011 with an objective to reform and revitalize the ICDS system.
As part of decentralization, all materials except rice and wheat would be procured locally by AWWs and SHGs. It also involves greater involvement of the community in implementation at the village level. Decentralisation of SNP has been appreciated by the Supreme Court of India and other States have been advised to adopt the model.
Take Home Ration (THR)
Take Home Ration [THR] is given to pregnant and lactating mothers; children from 6 months to 3 years as they do not attend the AWC on a daily basis. Severely Underweight children (3-6 years) are also given THR over and above Hot Cooked Meal. THR helps in addressing the nutrition status of the marginalized and vulnerable population in the community. A standard menu for THR has been designed and is being implemented meeting the protein and calorie norms within the approved ration cost.
