Today’s Children are tomorrow’s nation builders. Today’s adolescent girls are tomorrow’s health mothers. There are the assets to the country. Having this as objective the Department of ICDS is functioning towards the goal of “Malnutrition free Tamilnadu”.
The Government of Tamil Nadu has taken decisive steps to address the nutrition and health needs of children below six years, pregnant women, lactating mothers and adolescent girls. With a strong push towards universalization of the ICDS programme, ICDS services have been steadily extended to serve unreached habitations, under-served populations and hard to reach areas of the State.
