The Civil Society Scaling up Nutrition Alliance (CSO-SUN) has implored Zambians to embrace a healthy lifestyle by exercising and eating balanced diets.
CSO-SUN Country Director, Mathew Mhuru has hailed President Edgar Lungu for showing commitment with his morning runs as a way of inspiring Zambians to live a healthy life.
Mhuru has stressed the need to appreciate the fact that most illnesses are a direct result of the inability to look after the bodies.
He has since encouraged other Government officials to also embrace physical activity in order to improve their health and reduce the risk factors for non-communicable diseases.
Mhuru has emphasized that embracing a healthy lifestyle is critical to reduce Obesity levels and to improve lifestyle choices in the country.
