Eat Right Mela

To sensitise citizens on the role of food in preventive and promotive healthcare, the States/UTs would be encouraged to organise Eat Right Melas in all Metro cities, State Capitals and/or major cities. The idea behind the Eat Right Mela is to promote the message that healthy food can be fun, through an infotainment model. In all, around 40 Eat Right Melas could be organised in an Exhibition Format, with Food Stalls selling Fortified Foods, Organic Food, Healthy Food variants and promoting local and regional cuisines. Special encouragement would be given to the Street Foods of the region, by having street food stalls and training the vendors on food safety and hygiene through FSSAIs FoSTaC training content. Health camps/stalls with doctors and nutritionists conducting simple health parameter tests and Information Stalls with short films, digital posters, brochures and flyers would motivate people to be mindful and adopt safe and nutritious food habits.
