Nutrition Month 2020: Driving a Nutrition-rich India with ‘Protein Report Card’

Nutrition has taken a front seat in healthcare agendas of countries across the globe, and India is no different. While the country celebrates National Nutrition Week in September each year, in a recent announcement, Prime Minister Narendra Modi earmarked the entire month to be observed as ‘Poshan Maah’ or Nutrition Month nationally. Even amidst the pandemic, he asserted the need to increase nutrition awareness, especially among growing children, since mental and intellectual development is believed to be directly related to the quality of food intake. 

To give momentum to this ambitious campaign, the Right To Protein initiative launched a ‘Protein Report Card’ as a step towards addressing the gap of self-assessment and awareness, with a specific focus on protein consumption, which is significantly under debate in India. The Protein Report Card will help individuals understand their protein consumption levels and make an informed assessment of whether it is adequate or requires immediate intervention. All one needs to do is to simply log-on to the freely available Protein-O-Meter (protein calculator tool) and answer a few questions to generate a customized grade against their food habits.

 

Some people naturally eat the appropriate protein for their individual needs and maintain a healthy body through balanced nutrition. Unfortunately, these “intuitive eaters” represent only a small segment of the population, while the rest typically need help with eating right, in the form of external structure and guidance, at least temporarily. That’s why Right To Protein created Protein Report Card. The aim is to give individuals a nutrition blueprint for achieving their protein consumption goals and, at the same time, helps them develop the skills they need to eat well for life!

 

Curious to try it? Here’s what you need to do –

  1. Go to the Protein-O-Meter on our website
  2. Answer the questions when prompted. Enter your age, weight, height, lifestyle, gender & food preferences
  3. Share details of what you frequently consume for breakfast, lunch, snacks, and dinner
  4. The Protein-O-Meter will then calculate the amount of protein you’ve received in the day based on these details and grade you on your protein consumption
  5. Save a copy of your Protein Report Card and share them on social media as you encourage friends and family to follow suit!

If you’re an individual looking to monitor your protein intake and take a step forward towards good health and adequate nutrition, this Protein Report Card will help you do just that! This tool is useful if you’re tracking your protein intake or just want to be more informed about your diet. Each personalized score allows you to understand your specific protein needs and accordingly make smarter food decisions.

So, this nutrition month, healthier food choices are just a grade away!!

Carbs over Protein: Why Indian mothers could be making risky choices

The traditional Indian diet is a vibrant one, with various food groups coming together to serve as a satisfying meal. But with the growing sedentary lifestyles, the traditional diet can be harmful in the long run. While our mothers often modified meals to ensure proper nutrition, they accidentally cut the wrong corners.
