You are Sunidhi Prakash, the Vice Captain of Brilliant Vidyalaya, Barra, Kanpur. You have recently noticed several posters around your school premises conveying a hazardous message:
Lose weight in just a month!
“A WONDER DIET comes to your rescue …
A privilege available for only a few!”
Write a letter to the Editor of The DWA, in not more than 120 words, drawing attention towards harm caused by such advertising. Propose the implementation of “Wholesome Lunch Month’ in schools as an idea to address such practices, mention the advantages and share suggestionsto foster healthy eating routines and develop positive body image among youngsters.

Subject : Inadequate promotion of hazardous diets
1️⃣Through the column of your esteemed newspaper, I would like to draw people’s attention towards the increasing and inadequate promotion of hazardous diets which claim to make us slim or fit etc . 2️⃣ I believe that these diets are just gimmicks to hoard money from innocent people and they do more harm than good. 3️⃣ I recently came across an article where a 25 - year old woman suffered a cardiac arrest after being on a diet of only liquids and certain steroids for more than a month. This is just one example but I know that there are many people out there who believe that these shortcuts can be fruitful. 4️⃣Through your article, I would also like to propose the implementation of “wholesome lunch month” where people can be told the importance of a healthy diet which contains each and every nutrient and no sacrifice has to be made of a certain food item.
5️⃣ Please be kind enough to give this article a thought. I will be highly obliged and grateful
