Pyongyang, June 11 (KCNA) -- The Workers' Party of Korea and the state are entirely responsible for the healthy growth of the children in the DPRK. A large quantity of bean-flour drink is being mass-produced and provided to all children and students everyday as required by the science of nutrition.

The "time for bean-flour drink" for the children and students reflects the WPK's noble view on the younger generation and the true nature of the best Korean-style socialism in the world.

The Pyongyang Children's Foodstuff Factory has so far produced more than 300 million liters of nutritive bean-flour drink so it might be provided to the nurseries, kindergartens and primary and secondary schools in the city everyday.

The vans carrying bean-flour drink are called "vans for kings." The total distance covered by these vans reached a total of 14,150,000 kms which equal to 354 trips around the world.

President Kim Il Sung made sure that the above-said factory was built in the city and that even a workshop for nutritive milk was set up for children in Juche 68 (1979).

1986 witnessed the start of bean-flour drink at the factory.

General Secretary Kim Jong Il unraveled all the knotty problems arising in the production of the above-said drink. He set the best time from the viewpoint of the science of nutrition as the time for serving the drink and took a special measure for enabling all the children and students in the city to have the drink simultaneously.

This unfolded a spectacular scene in which the above-said vans run along the streets of the city under a well-regulated supply system. These vans are given top priority in traffic in all the streets so that they may reach their destinations without a hitch.

An order of the National Defence Commission of the DPRK was issued to solve the issues arising in the production and supply of the drink even in the period of the "Arduous March", the forced march.

There sprang up bean-flour drink production centers in different parts of the country. It has now become a rule for the provincial, city and county committees of the WPK and the people's committees to solve promptly all matters ranging from the provision of raw materials to the production and supply of the drink in a responsible manner.

Bean-flour drink production facilities are found in cities, counties and ris of Jagang Province to put the supply of the drink to all children and students there on a regular basis.
