This day take initiative and eat healthy to ensure a healthy and blessed future.
Growing your own organic food is also a very important thing. There are many vegetables and fruits which could be grown in a natural environment in your own backyard for example coriander, chilies, tomatoes, and grapes. This world food day we can decide to invest in harvesting our own food rather than purchasing inorganic material from stores.
Tasty food and junk food is not considered important on this day because this is an extremely luxurious diet for humans when all other creatures are dying because of hunger. This World Food Day lets take an initiative that we will save food and will make sure no one is hungry around us.
