Superstar Aamir Khan has said it is necessary to guide children on good lifestyle habits so that they can stay away from obesity and other related diseases.

Aamir Khan was interacting with media at the launch of Child Obesity Team (COST) website along with Maharashtra’s Water Resources & Irrigation, Medical Education Minister Girish Mahajan and Dr Sanjay Borude, bariatric (obesity) surgeon on Friday in Mumbai.

Speaking about malnutrition and obesity in India, Khan said, “On one side we are dealing with malnutrition and on the other we are fighting obesity. Our government is trying to deal with it…I was also a brand ambassador of UNICEF. So, I feel we have to work towards eradicating both malnutrition and obesity.”

Khan said it is necessary to guide children by teaching them good lifestyle habits. “I am really happy that Dr Sanjay Borude has started this initiative where through this website, obese children and their parents can get support and guidance.”

Aamir Khan said nutrition is the most important factor for being fit and healthy. “I got to know about the importance of nutrition when I met Dr Vinod Dhurandhar while training for ‘Ghajini’. He told me we are what we eat, and the more you eat healthy, fresh and balanced meal, the more you will feel healthy and fit. I always tell these things to my children but they don’t listen to me.

“What Dr Sanjay Borude is doing is a fantastic thing as it will help a lot of families who are fighting against obesity. I am happy that government of Maharashtra is also supporting the initiative.”

Many bollywood celebrities endorse various kinds of processed food through advertisement.

When asked if he would like to urge his colleagues not to endorse such products, Kan said, “No, that shouldn’t happen. We shouldn’t take extreme step because there are a lot of people who are not obese who can eat different kinds of food. We should have information about obesity because if we are aware, we can take precautions to deal with it.”
