And what better way can there be than starting at a young age.
Educating children right at the outset about basic aspects of health such as hygiene is important for the nation’s future. They must also be taught about the dangers of smoking, obesity, unhealthy eating, and lack of physical activity as well as harm reduction. I am happy to see the participation by children in such large numbers.”
Adding to this, Sumit Khosla, senior GM Marketing, Fena (P) Ltd said, “Good Hygiene is one of the most important aspects of staying healthy and disease-free. It is crucial to educate children right from the onset about basic hand-washing techniques, importance of wearing clean and washed clothes to keep germs away and the role of proper cleaning of utensils so that they are germ free.
We are very happy to participate in Perfect Health Mela and contribute to making India a healthier nation as our Motto is We Care For Your Hygiene”.
