Nutrtion workshop with Ankit Pogula and Pulkita PArsai (1)

With an organic garden up and running, we decided it was time to give the students an introduction to nutrition. With our fast paced lives and change in lifestyles, wholesome foods are slowly being nudged out of the picture.

Mr. Ankit Pogula, our organic expert, simplified the entire practice of being healthy and eating well. The wants of our body can be controlled by our minds. Hence, it is our decision to eat the fruit over a packet of cookies- a concept that immediately clicked with the students. They received tips on nutrition and they realized that being healthy is not that difficult after all! Sticking to seasonal foods and having a balanced meal are the key to being fit and fine.

The workshop culminated with the body web where every student got to be a part of the body. All the organs in our body are connected- each having an impact on the other. Hence, it is imperative to look at health and nutrition in totality as opposed to in isolation as is usually done when we have tummy aches and the likes!

To drive home the fact that our illnesses cannot be viewed in isolation, Ankit Pogula used a body web.
