On 10th August 2017 the health Cell of IQAC in association with YWCA Goa, organized a talk on Nutrition. The programme started with a video on Nutrition and its benefits.The talk was given by Ms Melzika Furtardo. She spoke on the importance and necessity of breastfeeding. She touched up on the initiation of breastfeeding, exclusive breastfeeding, contents of breast milk, family support, the diet mother should follow while breastfeeding. She also made us aware of the hazards and ill- effects of using bottles to feed the babies.
The second part of her presentation was the importance of a healthy diet. Diet does not mean fasting, skipping meals but a balance of proteins, carbohydrates, fats etc.We also had an interactive session with the audience where students and staff sought clarification.
Dr Deepa thanked the guest speaker for the information she shared which is very necessary for young women and presented her with a memento from the YWCA.
