AIIMS Bhubaneswar introduces healthy millets in patient and student dietsto celebrate Utkal Dibasa and promote healthy eating with G20 Jan Bhagidari campaign

Bhubaneswar, India - In a bid to promote healthy eating habits and to celebrate Utkal Dibasa, the All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS) Bhubaneswar has introduced millets in the diets of its patients and students.
The initiative was launched on April 2 by the Executive Director of AIIMS Bhubaneswar, Dr. Ashutosh Biswas, as part of the G20 Jan Bhagidari campaign. Millets, known for their high nutritional value, are now being included in the regular diet of patients and students.

Millets are gluten-free and have a low glycemic index, making them an ideal food for people with diabetes and those who are looking to manage their weight. They are also rich in protein, fiber, and minerals, which make them a healthy choice for people of all ages.

Speaking about the initiative, Dr. Biswas said, "We are committed to promoting healthy eating habits among our patients and students. Millets are an excellent source of nutrition and are known for their health benefits. By including millets in our regular diet, we are not only promoting healthy eating habits but also supporting the local farmers who grow these crops."

The initiative has received a positive response from the patients and students at AIIMS Bhubaneswar. Many have appreciated the efforts of the institute to promote healthy eating habits and have welcomed the inclusion of millets in their diet.

Millets are an important crop in the state of Odisha, and their inclusion in the diet of patients and students is expected to support local farmers and promote the growth of this crop.

The introduction of millets in the diet of patients and students at AIIMS Bhubaneswar is a step in the right direction towards promoting healthy eating habits and supporting the local community. The initiative is expected to inspire other institutions to follow suit and include millets in their regular diet.
