April 7: World Health Day
It is a global health awareness. It covers every aspect from health to food safety (of course) to climate change.
Each of us plays a role
April 7 of each year marks the celebration of World Health Day. This celebration which covers every aspect of our life, took effect in 1950. The goal was to create awareness of a specific health theme to highlight a priority area of concern for the World Health Organization. Each of us plays a role in implementing World Health. Magnifico Food – for example - is a startup that works with food. It is aimed to bring only the best quality of food from Italy. We really think that every action we do is part of a long chain that keeps us together. Our field is food, but we are aware of all the essential health issues people have to take care of.
Every year has its central theme
Over the past 50 years, many themes were addressed on this crucial day. For example, as we can read on the World Health Organization website, mental health, maternal and child care, climate change, of course. Last year, in the context of the COVID-19 global pandemic, the 2020 World Health Day theme was: "'Support Nurses and Midwives". "Around the world, people spent the day thanking the nurses and health care workers on the frontlines battling the COVID-19 coronavirus." Because of the pandemic, all the activities took place virtually. But the impact was real!
2021 topic: "Building a fairer, healthier world"
This year, the focus is "Building a fairer, healthier world." We think it's Magnifico due also to report the reasons why WHO choose this theme: On the website, we can read that: "Our world is an unequal one. As COVID-19 has highlighted, some people can live healthier lives. All over the world, some groups struggle to make ends meet with little daily income, have poorer housing conditions and education, fewer employment opportunities, experience greater gender inequality, and have little or no access to safe environments, clean water and air, food security, and health services. This is not only unfair: it is preventable. That's why we are calling on leaders to ensure that everyone has living and working conditions that are conducive to good health". In the meantime, each of us, as we said, has a role in this game. Let's be aware of the people around us, never waste food, always choose good quality and eat healthily. It is our commitment to always choose items able to bring well-being to your life.
Magnifico will always be committed to you
Can you imagine that every year Americans discard nearly 40 million tons of food? That doesn't help the planet to live a better life. Let's be aware of the decisions we take even when we talk about food. Sometimes it is a light topic, and we tell you fun stories about our culinary tradition, about the best Italian food. But we never forget that food is a really serious topic when we talk about our health. That's why we are, and we will always be, very committed to you.
