Now a days we are seeing this new bournvita ad in which they compare the bournvita biscuits with vegetables like brinjal and Jackfruit.
In the advertisement they say that brinjal is healthy but it does not go with milk. This is totally rubbish because I have never seen anyone having raw brinjal with milk. Firstly we cook the vegetables and eat with paratha or chapati and with this combination we can take milk also in morning at the time of breakfast.
In another ad they compare bournvita biscuits with Jackfruit. In this ad they say that Jackfruit is healthy but we can not bring this in lunch to school. Oh God! This is insane.. how can we eat raw Jackfruit. I think that they don’t know that first you have to cook Jackfruit then you can eat this with paratha or roti.
Well on a serious note, breakfast and lunch are the main meals of the day. Breakfast and lunch should be healthy and heavy specially in case of children. I am not saying that Don’t eat bournvita biscuits but you can not compare this with vegetables or fruits.
This is not the right way to promote the product. A packet of biscuits in place of vegetables and paratha for lunch is not good. It doesn’t matter how much nutrients it contain, biscuits can not be as healthy as food.
Jackfruit is known as the jack of all fruits. It is a rich source of vitamin, minerals, phytonutrients, carbohydrate, electrolytes, fiber, fat and protein. This fruit also contains calorie but no cholesterol or saturated fat. Like most fruits and vegetables, brinjals too are great for your heart. Being rich in fiber, potassium, vitamin B-6 and phytonutrients like flavonoids, this vegetable lowers the risk of heart disease. The presence of antioxidants keeps your arteries healthy and prevents heart attack.
But this is not only about brinjal and jackfruit, all I want to say that vegetables and fruits are good source of vitamins, minerals and antioxidants so we should encourage children to eat these healthy foods at the time of breakfast, lunch and dinner. Whereas you can have bournvita biscuits with milk or tea in the evening at the time of snacks or any time if you feeling little hungry.
