Harmful effects of modern diet
The disadvantages of adopting the modern dietary norms outnumber those of not following dietary norms. We are missing out on meals or breakfast prepared by our mothers and sisters. Bhakaris-chapatis (Indian breads) are being replaced by breads and cakes. The chutney (An Indian seasoning), salad and gul-amba (A type of jam prepared from jaggery) have vanished, and sauces & jams have taken their place.
Relatives who visit us bring biscuit packets instead of homemade Indian food items such as laddoos, chivada etc. Be it readymade food items from the market, artificially flavoured cold drinks, fast-foods such as Pizza or burgers or junk-foods such as Kurkure, their ill-effects have started showing on the present generation. Even students in the second or third standard are seen wearing spectacles or they are obese.
