Yoga can help children maintain healthy lifestyle, says PM in ‘Mann ki Baat’

PM Modi expressed concerns over children diagnosed with lifestyle diseases like diabetes and urged families to maintain a healthy lifestyle by doing regular physical activities and yoga.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi also said India has always vouched for world peace, unity and harmony and its armed forces have contributed in this direction through UN missions across the globe.

“Diseases that would earlier occur in old age only are now catching up with children. I get shocked to learn that children are also getting diabetic. The main reason for such diseases at such a young age is less physical activities and change in our eating habits,” Modi said in his monthly radio broadcast ‘Mann Ki Baat’.

Modi also said India has always vouched for world peace, unity and harmony and its armed forces have contributed in this direction through UN missions across the globe.

The programme included a phone call from a listener Partha Shah who mentioned about the World Diabetes Day to be observed on November 14, which is also celebrated in India as “Children’s Day” marking the country’s first Prime Minister Jawaharlal Nehru’s birthday.
