World Food Day is all about tackling global hunger and working to reduce food scarcity worldwide. The Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations launched it in 1979. It is now observed in 150 countries to raise awareness about hunger and healthy eating habits.
Word Food Day is based on a theme related to the global food crisis. The theme for this year is "safe food now for a healthy tomorrow." These themes are this day's soul elements. On this day, many events and seminars are held to discuss new approaches to address these issues.
World Food Day has used its annual day of celebration in recent years to highlight various aspects of food security and agriculture, such as fishing communities, climate change, and biodiversity. Giving food to those in need is the best way to celebrate World Food Day. Many non-governmental organisations (NGOs) arrange such events to raise awareness about the issue.
Switching to a healthy diet due to COVID-19
During this pandemic, a healthy diet is essential. Our bodies' ability to prevent, fight, and recover from infections can be influenced by what we eat and drink. Previously, people were less concerned about their eating habits, but after covid, people are more interested in learning what is healthy and what is not.
However, while the diet does not protect you from the covid-19 virus, it does provide you with enough immunity to do so. Obesity, heart disease, diabetes, and even some forms of cancer can be reduced with proper nutrition. World Food Day is all about spreading awareness about these things.
Restaurants serving healthy options to consumers.
Consumers demand a healthy diet option which is now being addressed by restaurants as well. Many fast-food chains have tailored their menus to cater to these particular needs. It is important to create menus that consider nutritional value, also making food more palatable so that people don't feel bad about not eating healthy.
Fast-food restaurants and chains that are known for serving unhealthy food, now are offering healthier options as well. Restaurants with a focus solely on healthy food are also becoming increasingly popular.
Here are some restaurants which serve only good food.
Bombay Salad Co.: One of Mumbai's most popular places for a healthy bite, Bombay Salad Co. boasts an extensive salad menu with nutrition-packed ingredients like broccoli, kale, celery, soya, quinoa, and beetroot. Their smoothies and fresh juices are also a good option to try.
While their starters and main course dishes are delicious, it's their power shots like the Aloe vera, Bittergourd, Spirulina, and wheatgrass that win the day. They also provide healthy concoctions with calorie counts for all meals, as well as membership plans for your daily food needs.

It is well-known for its signature burgers, including the Big Mac. The majority of McDonald's offerings are highly processed and unhealthy. The company has been chastised for its role in promoting the global obesity and type 2 diabetes epidemics. However, in response to this criticism, McDonald's has added several healthy options to its menu.
The menu includes a variety of healthy salads made primarily of chicken, vegetables, and fruit.
In the long run, all of the restaurants that were previously known for serving unhealthy food are now serving healthier options. People's desire for healthier options has increased, so the above-mentioned restaurants are now well-known for their healthy menus.
