Unhealthy eating habits are leading to several health problems and every citizen needs to understand the benefits of having a balanced diet, Vijayawada Divisional Railway Manager Pradeep Kumar has said.

At a seminar on ‘Diet and balanced diet’ organised as part of the Raj Bhasha (Hindi) implementation at the Divisional Office on Wednesday, he said the topic was useful for all railway employees as many of them had a dilemma on the right/healthy diet to be taken. Additional Divisional Railway Manager S. Subba Rao and other branch officers participated.

To overcome some health hazards, one should be vigilant and ensure that the food he/she eat was nutritious as well as balanced, explained Chief Medical Superintendent A.K. Bhatnagar. 

Dr. Bhatnagar, in his power-point presentation, showed the various types of food to be taken by an individual for keeping body fit and healthy. 

Earlier, Raj Bhasha Adhikari S. Chiranjeevi welcomed the gathering and wanted people to eat at regular intervals. Deputy General Manager Managala Abhayankar said the seminar would be useful in educating officers and staff on their well-being. She lauded the efforts of the DRM for their active participation and interaction.
