Wednesday Wisdom 🙂 Teenage Special
A Healthy College Life awaits YOU !!!
College life brings with itself a whole new perspective. It is a life where the young minds have to maintain equilibrium when it comes to hectic study schedule and extra-curricular activities like clubs, sports, college events, college excursions and workshops and many more.
To strike a balance among the many new parameters of life is never an easy task. It often leads to a constant juggle and somewhere eating HEALTHY meals take a back seat.
When our young talented teenagers leave us to pursue their career, take the next few words with ease – “They will not only be saying Goodbye to family members but also to their existing eating habits.” – This is the Bitter-Sweet Reality associated with College Life – A fear that doesn’t let mothers stay Calm & Composed when their children make way to New horizons.
COLLEGE LIFE: A MILESTONE THAT TEENAGERS LOOK FORWARD TO…AND MOTHERS FEAR TO FACE
It is during their course of college life when our children develop new eating habits- habits that can influence their health directly and studies indirectly. They are now exposed to a variety of options and it entirely up to them to make healthy choices and stay fit. The choices they make TODAY will stick with them long after graduation, hence it is advisable that they inculcate the Right Eating Habits as soon as possible in their college days.
When equipped with the right dietary awareness, it gets a lot easier to stay fit and healthy on the campus.
This November– I take this opportunity to share with you an uninterrupted chain of 4 articles on “Healthy Eating for College Students”.
Why November – Because November has a significant connection with Children. The Universal Children’s Day takes place annually on 20 November. It was established first by the United Kingdom in 1954, to encourage all countries to institute a day, firstly to promote mutual exchange and understanding among children and secondly to initiate action to benefit and promote the welfare of the world’s children.
Indians too celebrate Children’s Day on 14 November which coincides with the birthday of Jawaharlal Nehru – The first Prime Minister of independent India.
Jawaharlal Nehru was very fond of children and was affectionately called Chacha Nehru by these children – (Chacha is a hindi word for Uncle). Later the entire nation admired and addressed him as Chachaji of the Nation. It was his love for children that made Indians celebrate Children’s day on his birthday.
As a tribute to our beloved Chacha Nehru who emphasized the importance of giving love and affection to children for he saw in them the Bright future of India – I bring to you an uninterrupted series of 4 articles on “Healthy Eating” all through the month of November that will assist children to inculcate Healthy Eating Habits during their college days
Starting today onwards – Every Wednesday a new article will be uploaded that will take our children closer to believing that “Healthy Eating for College Students” is not a myth but a Reality.
