Students To Be Taught About Healthy Lifestyle

Policy Indications

Pune: The government will soon include various aspects of a healthy lifestyle in the school curriculum, said Union HRD Minister Prakash Javadekar. This will help students adopt a healthy lifestyle, he said at an international laparoscopic and bariatric conference held in Pune.    

Addressing medical professionals working in the field of bariatric and metabolic surgery, Prakash Javadekar pitched for a healthy lifestyle.

"We are going to include various aspects of a healthy lifestyle in the curriculum. Students need to know what all is to be done to lead a healthy lifestyle," he said.
