Bangalore, November 14, 2016 – Direct selling company QNET marked Children’s Day today by launching a health camp at the Government Primary School in Sahakarnagar. The two month long program called the Nutriplus Protein Power Health Camp is being implemented in association with Lions Club of Bangalore, Kodigehalli and is aimed at providing nutritional support to the students of the school by serving them protein shakes every day for two months.
QNet’s Nutriplus Protein Power developed by Dupont®, the world leader in innovative soy-based technologies and ingredients is a great-tasting, high quality, 100% vegetarian source of protein derived from soy. The formulation includes an excellent combination of vitamins, minerals and trace elements in balanced proportion for utilising the protein optimally.
The children’s version which additionally contains Docosahexaenoic Acid (DHA), a polyunsaturated omega-3 fatty acid, considered to be a beneficial fat is being used at the Health Camp to provide the students aged 6 years and above with the necessary nutrition.
Each of the 180 students will be served a protein shake every school day till January 14, 2017. Each serving of the Nutriplus Protein Power powder provides 5.8 gms of protein and when combined with milk (additional 6.4 gms) gives the child 12 gms of first class protein per serving of the shake.
The Nutriplus Protein Power Health Camp was inaugurated by Lion B Mohan, pmjf, District Governor, Lions International, District 317 F, Bangalore and QNET officials.
Nishchal Churamani, Head – Corporate Communications for QNET in India said, “QNET’s aim is to help create awareness about health, wellness and nutrition through our products and services. During the research and development phase for our products, we realised that Protein Energy Malnutrition (PEM) is a major public health concern in India. As undernutrition is more common in the lower income group, we decided to do something about it by partnering with Lions Club. This is the second such health program we have launched this year.”
District Governor, Lions Club District 317 F, Lion B. Mohan said,”We are extremely delighted to associate with QNET. The novel approach with our district’s associated school will set an example for other schools and strengthen the role they play in their communities. I hope we do more activities like this with QNET to improve the nutritional status of the kids in the country.”
Lion Anil Kumar.B mjf, District Chairperson for CSR said "QNET has always been in the forefront of lending a helping hand to the underprivileged and the needy. Last year they had come forward to provide the basic necessities to the flood victims in Chennai and also had contributed for a Kidney Dialysis unit at Bangalore to provide dialysis at a subsidised rate for the underprivileged. With QNET's support we propose to promote the nutritional program in various other Government schools. We thank QNET for being a pillar of strength for many of our service activities."
