CHANGSHA, May 30 (Xinhua) -- Premier Wen Jiabao recently visited several children of migrant workers who have moved to urban areas to find work, presenting the children with his well-wishes ahead of International Children's Day, which falls on June 1.

Wen made the visit during an inspection tour of the Wuling mountainous area in central China's Hunan province.

Wen visited a primary school in the area, inspecting the students' dorms and talking with teachers, students and their parents.

Wen urged local authorities and schools to guarantee food safety for students, particularly those whose parents are not around to supervise their diets.

Local governments in Hunan are participating in a national program designed to improve nutrition at rural schools, with the central government offering the schools a 3-yuan (about 47 cents) daily subsidy per student to go toward purchasing nutritious food.
