PFA sets up awareness camp for students at Queen Mary College
LAHORE: The Punjab Food Authority (PFA) on Thursday organized a seminar and a diet awareness camp for students at Queen Mary College.
A team consisting of expert nutritionists had informed hundreds of students about the dietary guidelines after their complete medical examination and nutrition counselling. The team also conducted medical tests of visitors including students and faculty members regarding weight, height, BMI, CBC and thalassemia free of cost.
PFA Additional Director General (Operations) Saba Adil and College Principal Dr Samra Imran have visited the camp to review the arrangements and facilities provided to students.
Saba Adil said that the purpose of the camp was to educate students about a healthy diet and provide complete diet plans to the new generation to keep themselves active and energetic. She said that the use of a home-made and well-balanced diet is the key to good health, however soda drinks and fast-food cause different health diseases.
She urged students to get the body used to light physical activity to fight diseases. She also selected students as food ambassadors under the PFA Student Ambassador Program.
College Principal Dr Samra Imran has appreciated PFA for organizing an awareness camp for their students and shed light on the quality of food. He added that this camp will play a vital role in the life of students.
