Indians Are Increasingly Opting For Healthy Food

Indians are increasingly opting for healthier food and dessert options like caesar salads and burrito bowls rather than the traditional biryani and pizza

After binging a lot on junk food during the lockdown, Indians are moving towards healthier food options as a new survey on Thursday showed that people are ordering healthier, nutritious food in 2021.

According to Swiggy’s Health Hub survey based on lakhs of orders, healthy food orders saw a jump of 20 percent in January as compared to December, clearly indicating a resolve to start the year on a healthy note.

Dishes such as millet khichdi, multi-grain masala dosa, Mexican burrito bowl, caesar salad, corn sandwich, along with Belgian bites and sugar-free ice cream made for the maximum orders, the food delivery app said in a statement.
