Under the "Beti Padhao, Beti Bachao" programme, the prayer meetings in Rajasthan schools will include discussions on healthy nutrition, an official said on Tuesday. According to Rajasthan Minister of State for Education Vasudev Devanani, these discussions will ensure that girls studying in schools are aware of nutrition-related issues.

Teachers will have to update about the nutrition being given to the students from time to time, he added. He informed that instructions have been given to the education authorities for organising various programmes on recitations in connection with "Beti Padhao, Beti Bachao" in the school prayer meetings.

Instructions have also been issued for organising quiz competitions on health-related issues during prayer meetings in schools on March 8 - the International Women's Day. This initiative aims at spreading awareness on girl students' health, he added.
