Eat Right India Initiative
As per FSS Act 2006, FSSAI is responsible for safe and wholesome food for Indian People. And that’s why FSSAI led the foundations of the ‘Eat Right India’ movement. The Tag Line of this movement is “Sahi Bhojan Behtar Jeevan”. It was started in 2018.
“Eat Right India” adopts a judicious mix of regulatory, capacity building, collaborative, and empowerment approach to ensure that our food is good both for the people and the planet. Further, it builds on the collective action of all stakeholders. These are the government, food businesses, civil society, organizations, experts and professionals, development agencies, and citizens at large.
Eat Right India adopts an integrative or ‘whole of the government’ approach since the movement brings together food-related mandates of the agriculture, health, environment, and other ministries.
Furthermore, foodborne illnesses and various diet-related diseases cut across all age groups and all sections of society. It also adopts a ‘whole of society’ approach, bringing all stakeholders together on a common platform.
Eat Right India aligns with the National Health Policy 2017 with its focus on preventive and promotive healthcare and flagship programs like Ayushman Bharat, POSHAN Abhiyaan, Anaemia Mukt Bharat, and Swachh Bharat Mission.
Themes of Eat Right India
Eat Right India is based on three key themes- Eat Safe, Eat Healthily, and Eat Sustainable.
Eat Safe: Ensuring personal and surrounding hygiene, hygienic and sanitary practices through the food supply chain, combating adulteration, reducing toxins and contaminants in food, and controlling food hazards in processing and manufacturing processes.
