If ever there was a time to take charge of our food choices and habits, it is now. With our fast changing lifestyles, India faces a silent epidemic today of rising childhood obesity coupled with under nutrition and micronutrient deficiencies. ARNEY’S FITKIDS is a well-researched guide to help children make healthier food choices and inculcate wholesome food habits at a young age, as habits formed in our early years stay with us for life.
We are in a rapidly growing modern age. To keep pace with the advancements, our Schools also need to prioritize children’s well-being. A lot has been spoken about healthy food and ‘junk food’. But, today, the need of the hour is to make children aware of ‘safe food’. Obesity among children and adolescents has increased tenfold in the last 40 years. Overweight and obese children are likely to stay obese into adulthood and more likely to develop non-communicable diseases like diabetes and cardiovascular diseases at a younger age. Moreover, students owing to the lack of awareness and knowledge related to food safety and nutrition inculcate bad habits and make wrong choices towards food.
The content is divided into age appropriate modules. The activities and guidelines have been designed to encourage adoption of safe and nutritious food practices. The course content is a resource-pool of facts, information and concepts, along with a diverse range of supportive material and tools.
Arney’s Backyard requests you to join hands in bringing a revolutionary change in putting an end to the growing statistics of obesity. We seek your support and participation in what promises to be the road to a bright and healthier future for our children.
