THIRUVANANTHAPURAM: Of all the formulas for good health, here is one that won’t make you cringe - healthy living begins with breakfast. The message, also the theme of World Diabetes Month, was spread in an awareness programme organised by P Kesavadev Trust and Diabetes India.

The following four messages on healthy eating were promoted:

Select food rich in fibre, low in fat and proven to prevent rise in sugar, blood pressure and cholesterol.

Never skip breakfast: Skipping the breakfast may cause obesity and diabetes.

Eat at the right time every day at frequent intervals, as both fasting and feasting may be detrimental to health. Healthy eating begins with breakfast. Follow the same healthy pattern throughout the day.

The rising epidemic of diabetes in Kerala is attributed to unhealthy food choices and lack of exercise, according to Dr Jothydev Kesavadev, chairman and founder CEO of Kesavadev Trust.

 “Even children and adolescents in large numbers develop diabetes due to unhealthy and untimely food. Skipping the breakfast before rushing to school, tuition or college is another reason for rising prevalence of overweight and diabetes,” he said. The programme was launched by former Miss Kerala Indu Thampy.

 Sasthamangalam Mohan delivered the keynote address. Palayam Mosque president S A Azim spoke about healthy living.

 Dr Arun Shankar, Geethu Sanal, Remya Iyer, Jayasree Lally and Sunitha Jothydev spoke on the occasion.
