It’s easy to see how the schools’ students gradually lose control of their diets. Due to incomplete knowledge or awareness about healthier foods kids are ignorant of the health risks associated with the use of hazardous foods and products. In 2016, GLA arranged a research based practical activity ‘Establish your ideal Food Brand’ for grades 9-12 students which was focused to develop their practical research and development skills. By undergoing this practical exercise the participants had opportunities of knowing the benefits of eating real and natural foods and thereby to reach their fullest potential in maintaining their ideal health.
The activity was focused to facilitate the UN Sustainable Development Goal No. 3 which ensures healthy lives and promotes well being for all at all rates. At global level many more efforts are needed to fully eradicate a wide range of diseases and address many different persistent and emerging health issues. By focusing on providing more efficient support to health systems, improved sanitation and hygiene, increased access to physicians and more tips on ways to reduce ambient pollution, significant progress can be made in helping to save the lives of millions.
The 4 steps meticulous activity ‘Establish your ideal Food Brand’ provided to the participants a research based practical exercise to develop their ideal food brand by knowing the difference between healthy and unhealthy foods and adequate and deficient food brands. Their awareness in selecting and eating real foods could lower blood pressure, cholesterol levels, blood sugar, and prevent everything from tooth decay and obesity to heart disease, stroke, diabetes and cancer.When we know about the difference, we prefer to have foods that are organic or grown through sustainable growing methods. This not only increases healthfulness but also decreases our carbon footprint and protects our environment.
This research based activity was aimed at providing following benefits to the young scholars:
- To develop among them research and practical work approach in preparing them to efficiently meet the future standards of advanced studies.
- To offer them detailed knowledge about foods, their sources and the factors which make them healthier or hazardous for the users.
- To give them introduction of practical research methodology by establishing a research based food brand through the fundamentals of marketing
- To present to each participant a research Certificate of Achievement as a valuable addition in her/ his academic record.
