Abstract:

One of the most important prerequisites for a long life is to "eat healthy and live healthy." But most of the adolescence eat junk food even in their meal time and get addicted to the taste of the junk food. Junk foods which are low in fiber, high in palatability, high number of calories, high in fat and high in sugar in liquid form. Even school canteens serve high-fat, high-sugar items, which contribute to child weight growth as well as other issues such as infections, food poisoning, and dental disease. In this framework, nutrition counseling plays an important role regarding the importance of balanced diet and it is imperative to concentrate on nutrition counseling in order to support the consumption of nutritious junk foods such as sprouted pulses, sprouted tikki, fermented foods, wheat noodles with a lot of vegetables, sprouted pulses, vegetable samosas, cutlets, and wheat and multigrain bread are some of the items on the menu.
