Project update-Sensitizing children to reduce salt
Our salt project has received a positive response from Chandigarh Commission for Protection of Child Rights to partner with government and private schools for our campaign. We aim to launch the activity in the month of August.
The World Health Assembly came up with several decisions this week, with a focus for countries to act and promote healthier diets. All member countries have agreed to the content and shown positive response.
One of the portion of the desired changes focus primarily on salt and to reduce its intake in our diet, establishment of a supportive environment in school, hospitals etc. and implement nutrition education and counselling in schools to increase the intake of fruits and vegetables. One of the methods suggested was to encourage the reduction of salt by inculcating behaviour changes among children and adults.
These objectives being included by WHO in its Global Action Plan is a huge step towards changing the food eating habits and reducing salt intake around the world. This is a great news for all of us around the world in our efforts to reduce salt intake.
We look forward to your continuous support for raising funds for this project by telling your friends and family about the project. Keep sharing the link on your social networks or just bring us up in conversations.
