Health experts in India have started a nationwide campaign to encourage people to eat healthier before bed by offering healthy snacks at night.
A video posted on YouTube by ‘Healthy Snacks India’ says, “I woke up to the sound of a fire alarm and saw my husband’s doorbell ringing.
What I thought would be a nice treat for a nice night’s sleep, instead woke me up to a huge fire alarm.
I grabbed my two-year-old daughter, who was still asleep, and ran outside to try and save him.
I was shocked when the house on fire engulfed the entire house.
We ran into a neighbour and a family of four who had already evacuated from the house, as the fire had started on our balcony.
We saw my daughter, and I couldn’t hold back the tears.
I am a very simple, gentle woman, and that day I became a mom.
When I looked at the video of my daughter crying on the balcony, I felt very scared.
I tried to console her with words, but I couldn`t do anything.
It was only after I saw the video that I understood what happened and how I should react to situations like this.
I wanted to do something to help my family, and since then, I have started to eat more healthy snacks in the morning.”
The ‘Healthful Snacks’ campaign has been launched in all the cities of the state of Madhya Pradesh, including Varanasi, Dadar, Raigad, and Chhattisgarh.
A campaign video shows a woman dressed as a superhero giving out a package of healthy snacks to her two-month-old baby, which she wraps up and throws into a garbage bin.
The woman says in the video, “You see, these are some of the best snacks you can eat.
We are very fortunate to have our family.
This is a good start.
I hope that people can help each other and give each other the good times.”
The campaign also encourages people to keep the snacks for a few days to allow the smell of the food to get through to the baby.
In a Facebook post, the campaign’s CEO, Manish Kalsu, said, “The campaign started with a single tweet, which has been shared more than 7.4 lakh times and counting.
We will continue to spread the word to encourage more people to embrace healthy snacks.”
