Prof. J. Vijaya Ratna's picture

Dear Santosh You rightly said that the following items should be taken in plenty in your write up. But in the pamplet by mistake they are placed in the "Limited intake" category. I draw the attention of our readers to this mistake which we later rectified. Why don't you put the Telugu pamplet here? Can't you scan it and keep it here? "Vegetables: Cabbage, Cauliflower, Lady's Finger, Brinjal. Liquids: Butter Milk, Low fat Milk, Sugarless Tea/Coffee." Here Dr. Mythili's name is on the pamplet . the food pyramid looks very good. i appreciate your enthusiasm to present things in new styles. Very good. Vijaya Ratna
