FSSAI and Herbalife conduct Eat Right Millet Walkathon

The event was aimed at promoting FSSAI’s initiative of encouraging healthy eating habits 

The Food Safety and Standards Authority of India (FSSAI), in partnership with Herbalife India, a global health and wellness company organised an impactful mass awareness event through Eat Right Millet Walkathon 2023 supported by Government of Telangana. The event was held in Hyderabad on August 25. In line with International Year of Millets 2023, Eat Right Millet Walkathon 2023 was aimed at spreading awareness about safe eating habits and motivating the public to include millet in their dietary regimen to reap its multiple nutritional benefits.

The walkathon has a broader mission to promote holistic health by reconnecting with our traditional dietary practices, which are known for their profound health benefits. The event also featured engaging activities such as Zumba and aerobic sessions, as well as games, to make learning about nutrition enjoyable and interactive.

Millets, once a staple food, are making a comeback as a healthy and nutritious staple food. The United Nations General Assembly at its 75th session in March 2021 declared 2023 the International Year of Millets (IYM 2023). IYM2023 is an opportunity to raise awareness of the nutritional and health benefits of millets, and to advocate for policies that support the cultivation of millets under adverse and changing climatic conditions.

FSSAI, the government regulator responsible for food safety and healthy eating promotion, partnered with Herbalife in 2021 to spread awareness about nourishing and safe eating practices. This collaboration demonstrates the shared commitment of both organisations to improving the health of the Indian population.
