Let's Lead a Healthy Life
Explain your idea in details:
In the absence of strict rules and inspection, nutritionally void products are claiming to be enriched with vitamins, minerals, calcium and iron, while conveniently overlooking the fact they are laden with preservatives, emulsifiers, artificial colours and flavours, excess salt, sugar and unhealthy fats. The majority of our medical problems these days are directly linked to poor diet and lack of information about nutritious food created by false advertising. Not only this People are misusing vitamins, supplements like fish oil, omega 3 fatty acids, antioxidants etc as a result of all those false and misleading information. My objectives are 1) To provide information about nutrition to all level of people who are being victim of these false and misleading information 2) To convey truth about vitamins and nutrition supplements that are being misused 3) To help people switch to green veggies from quick on go meal 4) To provide full information about fast foods including calorie, commonly used ingredients, their benefits and harmful effects. All these will be done through website and app which will be available free of cost because right to education and true information is fundamental right of human beings and should be ensured.
Expected impact of your idea on sustainable development
My idea will be helpful to everyone who are being victim of these false and misleading information about nutrition. This will help to know about child, adult and elder nutrition utilizing locally available products in Nepal and other developing countries. People with misconception about vitamins and supplements for a better health will switch to nature and save a huge amount of money being spent on these falsified products. The success of my idea will be evaluated practically by analyzing changes in food habits.
Plans for implementation and sustainability
Till date no any financing source have been obtained and I am searching for it. I will present my idea at platforms where funding is available. Using that fund a website will be created first by collaborating with software engineers.
I am a pharmacist by profession and currently working as a lecturer. I worked at Hospitals past two years where i got to know the concept of patients regarding vitamins and supplements. That thing inspired me the most towards nutrition. Most of the people were affected from gastritis, indigestion like problems that were mostly related with these quick-on-go meals. But still patients were going for medicines and other supplements rather to change their food habits.This inspiration led me to come up with this idea and help people take wise decision about their health.
