All the fast food is eaten as snacks in the evening.

Question 2: What about foreign food? What kinds of foreign food are popular in your country?

Answer:- In India, Chinese, Mongolian, Thai, Italian, Spanish, Persian, and American are some international cuisine that is very popular. Chinese Hakka noodles and Italian pizza are amongst my personal favourite. People also like Thai curries, American chops, and some Mughal and Turkish dishes too.

Question 3: In your country, is it important to have a meal together with your family?

Answer:- We believe that a family that eats together stays together. It is not made compulsory to eat together nowadays considering the changing work life of family members, but we make sure that at least at weekends, we eat together. The dining table serves as our common chatting point. We all discuss our daily affairs, thoughts and many more things with all the family members.

Question 4: Is food now better than in the past?

Answer:- Not at all, and it will only get worse with time. And when I am talking about this, I am referring to both food quality and nutritional values. Both are degrading. Food back then was very healthy and nutritious, and quality was even better than organic food in today’s Time. Many factors, including environmental and industrial, are responsible for this change, along with our changed preferences towards food.

Question 5: Do you think our diet is important?

Answer:- Our diet determines our personality according to ancient Indian health science, Ayurveda. We are what we eat. The importance of diet is not only limited to personality and behavioural traits but also to determining physical and mental fitness.

Question 6: What is a balanced diet?

Answer:- A balanced diet consists of the diet consisting of recommended proportions of macro and micronutrients. Macronutrients include protein, carbohydrates and fats, whereas micronutrients include vitamins, electrolytes and salts. Diet is complete with the source of lactic acid-containing food like pickles and yoghurt.

Question 7: How do your country’s eating habits differ from past ones?

Answer:- Previous generations used to follow a fixed schedule to eat. Their timings would never change. This generation has no fixed timing of food consumption, making them prone to disease as compared to older generations. Apart from the timings of breakfast, lunch and dinner, fat consumption in the form of cheese, myonses has increased by today as generation making them obese and puts them at risk of heart or brain stroke.

Question 8: How might eating habits change in the coming decades?

Answer:- In the coming days, food consumption in its original form will be lost, and only its products will be consumed. Most of the working class won’t have time to cook fresh food. Therefore, they will depend either on readymade or stored food, contributing to their worsening health.
