When it comes to protein and calorie counts, milk and bananas do not match up to eggs, particularly for [Madhya Pradesh], where development indicators are among India’s worst:
Almost 51% of children under five years of age are underweight, and 49% are stunted.
The state has India’s highest infant mortality rate, i.e. the number of deaths of children less than one year of age per 1000 live births.
The state also has India’s third-highest maternal mortality ratio, i.e. the number of registered maternal deaths due to birth- or pregnancy-related complications per 100,000 registered live births.
Here’s how an egg a day might help.
An egg has a protein value of 17.11 gm, which is higher than the required daily protein requirement of 15 gm recommended by the Integrated Child Development Scheme (ICDS), a centrally sponsored child-welfare scheme.
Eggs also have a higher kilo calorie count: 210, which is nearly half the daily requirement for a school child, while one cup of milk has 146 kilo calories.
