Published on: 04 Nov 2023

The Geography Department of M. C. Kejriwal Vidyapeeth in collaboration with Samayu and Switch On Foundation organized a workshop on the Importance of Plant-based Diet on 3 November 2023 for the students of Classes 4 and 5.

Mr Kushal Samadder from Samayu and Ms Ritika Maity on behalf of Switch On Foundation promoted healthy eating habits and encouraged our boys to develop a positive relationship with food in their address. An animated documentary was shown to the boys highlighting the importance of 'green diet' and its long-term benefits including healthier heart, longer life-span, sharper memory to name a few. This was followed by an engaging question and answer segment in the form of an interactive quiz. All the participating students were presented with a bookmark, a special gesture of remembrance to embrace a plant-based diet. 

This workshop was truly an eye-opener and broadened our perspective about how health is often dependent on the proportion of plants on our plates. Green diet is definitely the diet of the future, not only for our sake but also for a healthier environment and we look forward to adopting it in our daily lives.
