KUANTAN – The unhealthy habit of taking meals after 11 pm exposes the public to the risk of various types of diseases.
Health Minister Datuk Seri Dr S Subramaniam said it was easy for Malaysians to obtain food as such late hours of the night, making it their life style.
“This a challenge that we need to address, especially in changing the life style of Malaysians and educate tham to choose nutritious food that is good for health,” he said when officiating the Fourth Asia Pacific Public Health Conference here today.
He said various initiatives had been provided by the government to educate the community on the matter, including the use of technology such as ‘MyNutriApp’ to count calories taken in one’s diet. – BERNAMA
