Every one of us is in the midst of the festive season and making the most of it, especially because it was impossible to celebrate festivals like Janmashtami and Ganesh Chaturthi among others, due to the Covid-19 pandemic. Coincidentally Ganeshotsav also coincides with National Nutrition Week that is celebrated every year between September 1 - September 7 in India to create awareness about the need for people to have a well-balanced diet. Undoubtedly, celebrations are incomplete with good food and there is going to be loads of it along with drinks and sweets too. While people are busy enjoying their parties and gatherings, the thought that they are going to gain weight always tends to linger around all the time.
