Food (Āhāra) is an important part of human life. It gives us the energy and nutrients to grow and develop. Healthy food acts as strength and medicine. Limited food has been prescribed to keep indigestion at bay. Cāṇakya says: Mitabhojanam swāsthyam (That is, health lies in limited eating). It entails that limited food amounts to health, that is, it is the main cause of health. We should make our children and other family members understand well that eating frequently is the most harmful habit for health. The children in particular should be inculcated with the habit of eating to the prescribed times, so that they can abide by this golden rule and lead a happy life throughout.
