National Nutrition Week: The country is celebrating National Nutrition Week from 1 to 7 September. Eating properly, i.e. a healthy diet, not only helps children grow, but also protects young people from many types of diseases. Experts say that with the right diet, young people can avoid many cancers, including obesity, type-2 diabetes and heart problems.
According to a report published in Daily Bhaskar, one out of every five deaths in the world is due to poor eating habits alone. In this report, dietitian and nutritionist Dr. Deb Devjani Banerjee writes that about 19 percent of young people aged 2 to 19 in America and about 40 percent of obese people are obese. And because of this, they have an increased risk of diseases such as type-2 diabetes and cancer.

According to science, if you take two portions of fruits and vegetables in your diet, and protein and carbohydrate portions in the rest, this is the ideal situation. This means that half of your appetite should end with fruits and vegetables.
