How an IAS officer used AI machine to help school girls fight malnutrition

Ever since the machine was implemented, Gupta has found a positive change after the food quality improved along with the girls' BMI

Shubham Gupta, an IAS Officer, came up with an AI-based machine that conducts a quality check of the meals provided to the students after he heard that 61 girls out of 222 girls in Maharashtra’s Etapalli school Todsa Ashram were found malnourised. 

He is an assistant collector. He got the machine from a startup called “UdyogYantra.” This machine can check if the food given to the kids is good enough. An NGO helped him in getting in touch with the startup.

“I came in touch with an NGO that further connected me to a startup. We deployed here this machine designed by them… Through this machine, we have tried to implement improvement in not only the quantity but also the quality of food. Data collected here can be accessed by Headmaster and me. We have installed it in one of the 8 Ashram Schools so far,” he said.

The assistant collector when asked about his efforts, he said, “I came in touch with an NGO that further connected me to a startup. We deployed here this machine designed by them… Through this machine, we have tried to implement improvement in not only the quantity but also the quality of food. Data collected here can be accessed by Headmaster and me. We have installed it in one of the 8 Ashram Schools so far.”

The machine helps Gupta and the school keep track of the food’s quality. They began using it in September 2022. Since then, Gupta has noticed a positive change. The food quality improved, and so did the kids’ BMI.
