Feb 5,6: Millet Mela in Bangalore – Meet the Millet! Say hello to HEALTH

Remember the times when grandma made ragi seri mix to give your child a nutritious beginning to a healthy life? When was the last time you had delicious jowar or bajra roti or ragi mudde or haraka rice? Does sammai, sajje, amaranth sound like Greek to you?

Ever remember having heard your grandpa complain about lifestyle disease, that too when he was 40 years old?!

When did Millets drop out of our lives? Why did they disappear from our plates?

We invite you to the Millet Mela – Renew your earthly connection to Millets – EXPERIENCE many varieties, many colours, many tastes BUT one description: DELICIOUS AND HEALTHY

Think before you eat – look beyond the attractiveness of colourful cartons – nothing compares to the natural goodness available in Millets. How many food miles are on that packet when we have our own traditional Millets that grow in our backyard and support our farmers?

There is urgent need for us to change our food habits to include  safe and nutritious foods that are minimally processed to retain nature’s goodness.

Millets- your friendly food

Millets are highly nutritious and one of the least allergenic and slow digestible grains available. They contain high amounts of dietary fiber, B-complex vitamins, essential amino and fatty acids and vitamin E. They are particularly high in minerals, iron, magnesium, phosphorous, and potassium. The seeds are also rich in phytochemicals, which lower cholesterol, reduce cancer risk and are effective in preventing/managing lifestyle diseases.

Millets add diversity to your diet which is increasingly dominated by just two cereals – rice and wheat.

Millets: Friend of the environment

Millets are hardy crops that grow in dry soil under adverse conditions. They are a resource friendly crop and efficient in carbon fixing, thereby reducing CO2 emission into our atmosphere, as compared to rice and wheat.

Revive our traditional diet; make Millets a part of your daily food,
