As the world around us changes and rapidly evolves, and uncertainty for the future rages – the need to ensure proper family health has emerged as a key focus area for several Indians, as this is something which is under every individual’s control.
The notion that a nutritious and well-balanced diet has the ability to support good health has been discussed for years. What to eat – and not to eat – regularly grabs headlines, as consumers in general and mothers in particular, try to balance scientific advice and trends with their own culinary beliefs, familial traditions and recipes and local food availability.
While several regions across the country continue to wade through the aftermath of the pandemic’s second wave, many Indians now need to restyle their lives to adjust to a post pandemic world. Addressing this, the discussion highlighted the various facets of the road to recovery, and the requirement to make every family member’s health a top concern. During the discussion, panelists shared examples and experiences from their personal lives urging families across India to invest more in building the quality of their health and lifestyles.
