Shimla AHS students tickle taste buds at cooking competition, get tips on healthy dietary habits
SHIMLA- In a sequence to the celebration of 150th Anniversary of the Auckland House School management had recently organized a workshop on Nutrition by Nandini Pathania which was followed by a dry food cooking competition.
During the workshop Nandini, emphasized on the importance of healthy food. Students were informed that 150 mg calcium is important for a human body and hence it’s important to maintain balance to live a healthy life. She laid stress on nourishment and encouraged students to change their food habits.
Pathania informed that dieting doesn’t have positive results in the long run as often by end of day one ends up having extra food. She encouraged students to be sensible and careful about food habits and keep five groups, namely sugar, fats, vegetables, pulses and rice, as essential part of their diet.
She concluded her workshop by her message
Love yourself and before losing everything it’s better to take care of self while time is still in hand,
