Navi Mumbai: To commemorate National Nutrition Week, Medicover Hospitals, Navi Mumbai organized activities such as poster-making competitions, free diet consultations, and body composition analysis for over 950 staff members.
“Proper nutrition is not just about maintaining a healthy weight or looking good. It is the fuel that powers our bodies and minds, ensuring optimal performance in every aspect of our lives. “When one nourishes himself/herself with wholesome, balanced meals, the body gets nutrients it needs to function efficiently. A diet rich in fruits, vegetables, whole grains, and lean proteins can have numerous benefits for physical health. Essential vitamins and minerals support our immune system, helping us ward off illnesses and stay well. Proper nutrition also plays a crucial role in preventing chronic diseases such as diabetes, heart disease, and certain types of cancer. Additionally, eating foods high in antioxidants can help protect against age-related cognitive decline. Right nutrition is essential for overall health and well-being. By prioritizing nutrient-rich foods in our diets, we can optimize the functioning of both body and mind,” said Dr Rajeshwari Panda, HOD, Nutrition and Dietetics Department, Medicover Hospitals, Navi Mumbai.
Dr Panda added, “The hospital staff are often busy due to the erratic schedules and are unable to pay attention towards eating habits. Hence, they encounter problems such as weight gain, obesity, acidity and indigestion. To encourage everyone to embrace correct eating habits, the hospital organized free diet consultations and body composition analysis for over 950 staff members of the hospital to know their health status. The staff members came together by taking out time from their hectic schedules, participated, and enjoyed the poster-making & quiz competition & games organised by the Diet Department. Everyone pledged to eat healthy and live happily.”
“We believe that good health is not just the absence of disease, but a holistic state where physical, mental, and emotional well-being are in harmony. We have implemented various initiatives to ensure that our patients and staff members are taken care of in the best possible way. We are thrilled to have taken the initiative to prioritize and invest in our staff members’ health. By prioritizing their health, we ensure that they can stay healthy, increase productivity and improve the quality of life,” concluded Dr Naveen K.N, General Manager and Center Head, Medicover Hospitals, Navi Mumbai.
