Summary of Nutrition event held on 11th september 2014
Session on Packaged foods – read your labels right by shilpa mittal

Covered topics like what to look for in terms of nutritional labels-

1.Check the claims in front of the pack like cholesterol free, low fat, sugar free, 100% natural with the information at back of the product for eg- cholesterol free may be true as all vegetable oils are naturally free in cholesterol, cholestersol is present only in animal product like meat, fish, eggs, dairy. Be a smart consumer.

2.Source of fat, sugar, percentage of calories coming in from them in total calories.

3.Check for salt content, can be present in terms of preservatives too.

4.If sugar free check which other form is used like dextrose, fructose, invert syrup, liquid glucose.

5.Serving size is very important eg-  20gm fats in 50 gms chips i.e one serving, what if you finish one full pack of 200gm, that will contribute to 80 gm fat.

To make healthy choice read your labels right.

Yoga by Mrs Neelam
Breathing exercise that can be performed anywhere.

If you don’t have time just do 6 assanas…2 before breakfast, 2 before lunch, 2 before dinner.

Love yourself and hug your know self, let go things don’t hold them.

How by concentrating on sounds that disturb you, you can relax eg- snoring.
