This Raksha Bandhan, give your Loved Ones the Gift of Health, with a box full of Almonds!

Bhubaneswar : It is yet again the month that marks the beginning of the festive season, where families across the country prepare to celebrate the much-awaited festival of Raksha Bandhan. Honoring the bond between siblings, tying the ‘rakhi’ is symbolic of the love and trust siblings hold for each other, and look forward to this occasion to pamper each other with extravagant gifts. While preparations are in full swing, this is also the time to think deeply about the gifts one is sharing.  Keeping in mind the health and wellness of our loved ones this Raksha Bandhan, let us strengthen our bonds to take better care of them by sharing a box full of health – a box full of almonds!

Regional Head-Dietetics, Max Healthcare – Delhi, Ritika Samaddar said, “Almonds have been perceived as an auspicious gift traditionally, during festivals and special occasions. Gifting almonds is a sign of gifting good health as it embodies the care and concern of the gift giver. Gifts like almonds are an excellent choice as they will not only serve as a nutritious and delicious snack, but the gesture itself is representative of one’s interest in the overall health of your loved ones. Almonds are a source of nutrients such as vitamin E, dietary fiber and protein amongst others. Studies also support that consuming a handful of almonds every day helps in maintaining heart health and better managing blood sugar levels. So, this Raksha Bandhan, I would recommend everyone to make mindful gifting choices and share a box of almonds with your siblings.”
