Ludhiana, December 22

The Health Department is on a mission to create awareness among masses regarding “Eating less and eating right”.

Under the Swasth Bharat Yatra commenced by the Food Safety and Standards Authority of India, cyclists pedalled from one district to another and spread a message of eat right India.

“Eating healthy is not just about the nutrients in the food. It also includes eating at the right time and eating properly. Meanwhile, eating late at night, hurriedly and inconsistently will have adverse effect on health,” said Dr Andesh Kang, District Health Officer.

On the first day of the three-day event, the team was welcomed at the Community Health Center (CHC), Dehlon. Less sugar, less oil and less salt intake in daily routine and eating fortified food was the message given by delegates.

Yogesh Goyal, Food Safety officer, said Eat right India is built on two broad pillars of eat healthy and eat safe. It aims to enable citizens to improve their health and well being.
