Amway launches #EatHardEatSmart campaign to encourage regular balanced diet

Kolkata, 18 March, 2019: Amway India, the country’s largest direct selling FMCG company, has launched #EatHardEatSmart campaign to promote and support the benefits of balanced nutritional intake for a healthy lifestyle.

Based on the concept of right and optimum nutrition, the #EatHardEatSmart campaign focuses on addressing the nutritional gaps that may arise since the regular diet may not be a balanced one. The resulting shortage in required amount of daily nutrition by the body can be managed through appropriate supplementation.

Did You Know:
• 9 out of 10 Indians are protein deficient in diet*
• Most Indians are not consuming even 5 servings of fruits and vegetables every day**
• Typically, the Indian diet may not contain much of Omega-3 fatty acids. In many cases, fish and other seafood, nuts and seeds, such as flaxseeds, chia seeds, and walnuts,  and plant oils such as, flaxseed oil, soya bean oil, and canola oil are missing altogether***

Owing to changes in lifestyle and eating habits over the past few years, the nutritional gap has widened which might adversely affect the health and wellbeing of people. In line with its philosophy of helping people live better lives, Amway is strengthening its efforts to create awareness regarding proper nutritional intake and its positive impact on leading a healthy lifestyle. As a part of the #EatHardEatSmart campaign, the company will be launching a series of initiatives to further educate Amway direct sellers and consumers on the need of the daily requirement of nutrition in their regular diet.

Launching the campaign, Mr. Sundip Shah, Chief Marketing Office, Amway India, said, “Eating a healthy and balanced diet every day is key to optimal health. However, considering the realities of today’s fast paced life and the irregular eating habits that have impacted the nutritional intake among Indians, I believe nutritional supplements along with regular diets can go a long way in improving the health of our nation. According to various researches done over the years, 9 out of 10 Indians are protein deficient in their diets. Your regular diet may not contain the adequate amount of nutrition required daily. With this campaign, we are creating an awareness on the importance of protein, essential nutrients, vitamins, minerals and omega-3 in regular diet.”  “Amway has been leading not only the protein dietary supplement segment but also the vitamin and dietary supplements market in India” he added.

Commenting on the campaign, Ajay Khanna, Category Head, Nutrition and Wellness, Amway India, said, At Amway, we believe in promoting good health and wellness for all. A nutritious, healthy and balanced diet along with physical activity is the foundation of good health. We are excited to launch #EatHardEatSmart campaign which creates an awareness on the importance of protein, essential nutrients vitamins, minerals and omega -3 in your regular diet. The initiative is also aligned with our continued focus on enhancing the lives of our consumers.”

Offering protein, essential vitamins and minerals, Amway’s Nutrilite has a strong legacy of more than 80 years of pioneering and perfecting the approach to supplementation. Nutrilite is the world’s No. 1 selling vitamins and dietary supplements brand[2].
