Chennai, 12th November 2018: Fortis Malar Hospital, a leading Multi-specialty Hospital in Chennai, celebrated Children's Day at their facility. The session witnessed  Dr. Suba Karthikeyan, Pediatrician & Neonatologist, interacting with the children on healthy habits like eating healthy, regular physical activities, focusing on food nutrition labels, washing hands, dental hygiene, the importance of outdoor games and basic knowledge about first-aid and safety.


Concentrating on nutrition for kids, Mr. Pitchiah Kasinathan, Dietician, Fortis Malar Hospital, taught the kids about the importance of eating healthy, having a breakfast rich in protein, and also recommended that parents include fruit in their children’s diet. Attended by 35 children, the two-hour session saw children interacting with the doctors, taking an ambulance tour, and enjoying various fun activities organized by the hospital staff.


Addressing the children and parents, Dr. Suba Karthikeyan said, "Giving children a health awareness session as part of the Children's Day event, is the best gift we can offer them. In this technology-driven era of cell phones, it is essential for children to understand the health hazards associated with overuse of these devices, like vision problems, sedentary lifestyle leading to obesity, attention and learning disorders. Also, personal hygiene and safety tips for a healthy and strong body are important for the children."


Commenting on this, Dr. Jayashree Jayakrishnan, Lactation Consultant, Fortis Malar Hospital said, "It gives us great joy to see children and parents interacting with the doctors and getting their queries clarified on children health, vaccination and eating habits. We are confident that this session will not only benefit the children but also their parents. Through this session, we are sure that parents and kids understand the significance of good health."
