This scheme has been implemented in the state to provide additional nutritional food and supplements to all the pregnant women, lactating women and children who are enrolled in 77 Scheduled & Tribal mandals. These Scheduled & Tribal sub-plan mandals are spread over eight districts and 7 ITDAs (Integrated Tribal Development Agency) of the state.

Every year thousands of pregnant/ lactating women and children die because of matriculation in India. Lakhs of women suffer from anaemia and other health issues due to the lack of nutritious food pre and post-delivery of the child. When we talk about Andhra Pradesh, more than 50% of pregnant women are suffering from Anaemia and nearly 32% of small children have stunted growth due to poor nutrition. To eradicate this critical issue of malnutrition among women and children, State Govt launched two important schemes- YSR Sampoorna Poshana and YSR Sampoorna Poshana Plus Scheme.
