Food Labelling Can Help Prevent NCDs

India faces equally difficult issues with regard to food, nutrition, and health. About 5.87 million of all fatalities worldwide—or 60% of all deaths—are caused by non-communicable diseases (NCDs), including those brought on by eating disorders. The widespread availability of foods with a high caloric density and a high salt, sugar, and saturated fat content is one of the main causes of this. Packaged junk food is responsible for more deaths worldwide, and it is also a major contributor to obesity, type 2 diabetes, cardiovascular disease (CVD), and cancer.

One of the most important ways to prevent NCDs is to maintain a healthy diet. Obesity, hypertension, type 2 diabetes, and malignancies are examples of chronic non-communicable diseases that can be prevented by eating complex carbohydrates, fruits, vegetables, legumes, and animal products in moderation and limiting your intake of fats and oils. Consuming a variety of foods helps your body get the nutrients it needs, fights disease and illnesses, gives you energy for daily tasks, and generally enhances your health and well-being.

Front-of-package warning labelling is essential for encouraging healthy lifestyles because it helps customers to quickly, clearly, and effectively identify items that are rich in nutrients of concern connected to NCDs.
