In the initial stage, the programme would be implemented in a limited number of schools (say, 50 schools) with a focus on middle classes across the country. This would help us in pre-testing of the curriculum and content, pedagogical solution, assessment tool, and the technology platform. Once, these core elements are in place, the programme will be expanded to cover schools across states in multiple languages.
There will be a strong emphasis on collecting evidence of the impact this program has on the knowledge, behaviour, and skills of children engaged. Based on outcomes, we would scale up and sustain the initiative by engaging more schools, peer organizations, the government, and their agencies. Quick scale-up would be possible by adopting a technology-first approach and building a community of teachers and a large pool of food coaches trained in the FFL curriculum. Over the next five years, we aim to engage 100 million people in the food literacy curriculum in India.
