Zindagi Trust Management proudly shares with their donors that the Breakfast program has entered its third phase where children have started practicing, how to fetch breakfast from the counter following a laid down drill. Through this drill children are moulded in to a disciplined and civil member of the society. We believe that children need to be drilled to accept and follow laid down boundaries early in age so as to become law abiding citizens of the future.
We also appreciate children’s parents’ support which guides us about their children’s habits and the way to deal with. Parents’ comments are very encouraging in terms of their children’s health. They feel that their children now avoid eating junk food from the street’s vendors. They also realize the fact that healthy choices at early ages support children to make them healthy and they are able to take positive decisions as they grow. Breakfast program has proven that establishing healthy habits in childhood can promote behavior changes capable of lasting a lifetime.
Finally, Zindagi Trust with this slogan “Good nutrition is the bedrock of lifelong health”, is thankful to all its donors, parents and well-wishers because without their support it could not have been possible
