Eating a balanced diet is vital for good health and wellbeing. Food provides our bodies with the energy, protein, essential fats, vitamins and minerals to live, grow and function properly. We need a wide variety of different foods to provide the right amounts of nutrients for good health. Enjoyment of a healthy diet can also be one of the great cultural pleasures of life.
Keeping this in mind, the SIDART team conducted a Health and Nutrition Camp at Sabli Panchayat in Bicchiwara, Dungarpur to increase awareness amongst the residents of the district as well as provide services for MCHN days. The volunteers helped maintain basic hygiene standards of the village by clipping the nails of children and specifically for pregnant owmen, lactating women as well as children of the age group of 0-3.
The volunteers also gave health advice and nutrition tips to individuals regarding their weight, blood pressure, health checkup, haemoglobin etc., all free of any monetary charges.
