‘Eat Right’ Quiz is an initiative by the Food Safety and Standards Authority of India (FSSAI) to create awareness among people across the country regarding food safety, nutrition, healthy eating habits and sustainable food practices. This activity aims to engage, excite and enable citizens to improve their food habits and consequently their health and wellbeing through an interactive learning process.
The Eat Right Quiz contains multiple choice questions based on the three themes of the ‘Eat Right India’ movement launched by FSSAI, namely ‘Eat Safe’, ‘Eat Healthy’ and ‘Eat Sustainable’. These questions are designed to motivate citizens to think and learn about various matters related to food such as diseases resulting from unsafe and unhealthy diets, food adulteration, safe food practices, good personal and surrounding hygiene and sanitary practices, balanced diet, fortified foods, healthy eating habits, managing food waste and environment-friendly food practices. Through this fun and interactive quiz, participants would have the opportunity to not only test their knowledge about food and win attractive prizes but also learn about the latest issues around food.
The overall objective of the Eat Right Quiz is to bring about social and behavioural change among citizens to adopt healthy eating habits through the MyGov platform.
