  1. Establishing Public Distribution System (PDS) stores like ration shops is recommended. These must be adequately regulated in order to address the issue of essential food grains being accessible to the largest population. The government should ensure that the Public Distribution System (PDS) must function properly which would help eradicate hunger .  
  2. One should keep regular track of his/her Body Mass Index (BMI) , which is a measure of body fat based on height and weight that applies to adult men and women . A healthy BMI can be maintained by taking healthy and nutritional food. 
  3. By providing enough access to basic medical and educational services , which can also be accomplished through neighborhood-based initiatives like dispensaries, health fairs, vaccination programs, etc.
