Annapurna is HerHealth’s Health and Nutrition Champion! For a person who kept away from vegetables and substituted fruits with junk food, the training proved to be a complete ‘U’ turn in her food and nutrition habits.
Prior to the training she regularly missed her breakfast and visited the factory dispensary frequently, seeking quick-fix solutions for fatigue and the inability to concentrate at Work. She would rest for a while; take a tablet and some powder glucose to revive her strength and return to work.
Not only did Annapoorna begin to eat breakfast regularly, but she also influenced her peers to adopt healthy eating habits and take care of their well-being. She used the flipbook that was provided during the training to guide her peers on various aspects related to health. A true champ indeed!
