Workshops emphasise food choice based on availability, accessibility and affordability
On the occasion of International Women’s Day, Mars Wrigley India partnered with Smile Foundation to conduct workshops to impart nutritional knowledge to women.
The workshops, which were conducted across Chennai, Hyderabad, Pune, Bengaluru and Mumbai, featured nutritionists training women on concepts of healthy eating, dietary sources of essential nutrients, nutritious food items and the importance of nutrients as per the stages of life.
At the workshops, the nutritionists emphasized the 3-A model of nutrition, which recommends choosing food as per availability, accessibility, and affordability.
The workshops also witnessed educational modules on hygiene. Additionally, especially prepared hygiene kits were distributed to the participants.
Talking about the initiative, Kalpesh R Parmar, General Manager, Mars Wrigley, India said, “At Mars Wrigley, we have always believed in bringing joy and happiness through our products and our outreach on the occasion of International Women’s Day is a demonstration of our purpose. This was a great opportunity for us to reach out to our core target audience in a meaningful manner and we look forward to more such unique collaborations and initiatives for our consumers.”
