Dietetics Day observed

Chandigarh: India has highest prevalence of anaemia at 39.8 per cent. Around 50 per cent of the Indian women have low haemoglobin levels and are not even aware that they are anaemic. Most common anaemia occurs from iron and vitamin deficiency. Iron deficiency anaemia occurs because of lack of iron mineral in the body. This was discussed during an event held to observe “National Dietetics Day” at the Advanced Paediatric Centre auditorium at the PGI. Lectures on anaemia and how to prevent it by incorporating locally available iron and folate-rich foods were held. A quiz contest was also held for the audience, which comprised of the most vulnerable groups like young mothers and adolescent girls.  TNS
