Anganwadi centres come under the Integrated Child Development Scheme. The main objective of this program is to improve the nutritional status of preschool children 3-6 years of age group. To provide supplementary nutrition Anganwadi Workers would cook the food using firewood as source of energy and provide the food to children and nursing mothers. Besides the high expense, another problem of cooking over an open fire is the increased health problems brought on from the smoke, particularly lung and eye ailments. In order to save the AWW and AWH from harmful exposure of the smoke, JSW Cement Ltd., Bilakalagudur, has provided gas connection along with Stove to each Anganwadi Center of DIZ villages.
