Gandhiji is the inspiration for the Eat Right India movement. Gandhiji fought tirelessly for the freedom of the country.
Today, the battle we face is of unsafe food and unhealthy diets which are largely responsible for the diseases and death burden of the country.
Therefore, his life and his message serve as a guiding force to fight this battle.
