What to eat in Monsoon

With the rains just around the corner, one needs to eat healthy food so as to avoid falling sick in monsoons. It is important to have a perfectly healthy body and for that, one needs to keep a check on what to eat and what not to eat. Well, here's a quick guide on what one should eat and what should be avoided in monsoon -

Skip eating outside

Try to avoid eating from outside as much as possible. Street foods like pani puri, bhel puri, sandwiches and pakoras.

Consume Seasonal fruits and  veggies

They have a good amount of nutrients that will keep you fit during this season. Do not have watermelon or mangoes during this season. Consumption of bitter vegetables like karela is good.

Wash all vegetables and fruits properly
Eat steamed salads instead of raw vegetables as they contain active bacteria and virus that cause bacterial and viral infections.

Stay hydrated

It is extremely important to drink lots of water during the monsoons, so that your system is clean. You can alternate tea and coffee with herbal drinks like jasmine tea, chamomile tea or green tea. It keeps you healthy and fight against infections. Avoid drinking too much coffee as it dehydrates your body.

Use ginger,kali mirch,garlic,turmeric more in your food.

Eating watery foods like lassi, watermelon, rice, muskmelon,tamarinds creates bloating.So, better opt for foods which are drying in nature like corn, gram flour, chick pea etc.

Foods such as brown rice, oats, and barley are the best foods one could have in this monsoon.

Opt for yogurt, curd and almonds in your diet instead of milk.

Shower immediately after getting wet to protect against infections.

Avoid too much of fish and meat this season and heavy curries and non- vegetarians should go for light meat preparations like stew and soups.

Keep your house clean and pest-free

Exercise regularly

Drink Boiled Water

Following these guidelines helps you to stay safe and healthy during monsoons. Always binge on nutritional food.

Have a safe and healthy monsoon.

Why childhood obesity is on the rise
08 July 2015
                When we think of obesity or being fat, we rarely think of children in that category thinking fat is cute. But what we fail to realise is that fat can be very dangerous for your child.  What is childhood obesity? Obesity is defined as a 20% excess of calculated ideal weight for age, sex and height of a child. A child is said to be obese when there is an excess of accumulated fat in the subcutaneous tissue (below the skin) and other areas of the body.   Situation in India Studies show that in India, nearly 15 to 20% of children are overweight and 30% are in the risk of falling in this category. It is these statistics that ring major alarm bells. In India, many studies have shown that the prevalence of overweight among adolescents varies between 10% and 30%. Another important concern is that as high as 60 to 70% may continue to be overweight or obese in adulthood. So how can parents handle this situation ·         Discipline your child and enforce some restrictions regarding their diet. ·         Give them tasty and fresh home-made foods than outside, readymade food. ·         Keep a balance in time spent on studies and playing. ·         Encourage physical activities as a family like going for swimming, badminton, etc together. ·         Let them take part in sports too and not only be focussed on academics. ·         Avoid feeding them with excess butter, ghee and other fatty foods hoping that their child will become healthy.He/she should not consume more             than 3-4 tsp oil per day. ·         Give them salads before lunch and dinner. ·         Include healthy mid-meal snack options like sprouts, eggs, sandwiches.
