Mangaluru: Changing lifestyle, when the younger generation is influenced by fast food and junk food, schools have prominent roles to play in motivating and educating the young learners towards healthy eating habits.

The assembly also had a melodious song sung by the choir group. The Gonzagaites engaged themselves in activities like chart making using multigrain, salad making with sprouted grain.
Bulletin boards were decorated with the marvellous butterfly charts using multigrain which attracted everyone. Later on, health benefits of different grains were highlighted in the daily assembly.
