DFPD recommends healthful use of Millet-based foods in Canteens and official meetings

To promote the consumption of Millets and in view of their health benefits, the Department of Food and Public Distribution (DFPD) has directed all its offices to introduce and promote millets in their canteens and for meetings. This is a welcome initiative to encourage consumption of millets due to its health benefit. Millets may be included as one of the snacks/Biscuit made up of millets (having main raw material as millet) such as Ragi Biscuits/Cookies/ladoos and baked millet chips etc. as snacks to be serve in the meetings. Millet/Ragi Dosa, Millet mix vada, Millet mix Puri and Idli /ragi ladoo etc with Millet as the main raw material have been recommended to be used in the Canteens and as much as possible, locally available millet-based products should be used.
