ICDS  has been operational in Mizoram since 1978-79. The services of ICDS have been delivered from Anganwadi Centres only. All the performances revolved around the Anganwadi Centres. At present here are 27 ICDS Projects having 2244 Anganwadi Centres.

Mizoram has the proud privileged of having one of the best Anganwadi Centres in the country. Most of the Anganwadi Centres are beautifully built through the contribution of coordination at the village or individual Anganwadi Centre level between the Project staff and the concerned committees.

Considerable progress has been achieved in the field of women and child development through ICDS Programme which has been implemented in the State (Mizoram) since 1978. Health and Nutrition has received adequate attention. More importantly, a general awareness of the need to give a good foundation to children up to the age of 6 years, and care for pregnant and lactating mothers has been generated. The community participates in the ICDS Programme by way of donation of land and buildings, transporting nutrition food, constructing and repairing Anganwadi buildings etc. There are 26 ICDS Projects covering all the 27 RD Blocks. Out of the 27 Projects, one project is located at Urban slum areas of Aizawl Town. Initially, the scheme covered 15% of the total population and the eligible beneficiaries covered at the initial stage were only 20%. With the opening of more ICDS Projects, the scheme covered about 95% of eligible beneficiaries. Each C.D.P.O. supervises, monitor and guide the work of the entire Project, including regular supervision of Anganwadi Workers. For this they undertake field visit regularly. CDPOs make necessary arrangement for obtaining, transporting, storing and distributing various supplies of Nutrition items and ensure that all the equipments and materials supplied for the ICDS programmes are accounted for and are used and maintained properly.
