Owing to the increasing preference for snacks it has become extremely important to understand what to choose among the myriad of choices available to us easily during times of social distancing. The expert panel will talk about mitigating the health requirements through healthy snacking and also focus on the health hazards of unhealthy snacking.
In recent times, people have become increasingly aware of healthy food habits but taste has also been a crucial factor for them.

The aim of the event is also to make people aware of such options that can be beneficial for them.
