Why this Competition?

Through this competition, we aim to increase awareness about the importance of immunity, and how it can be boosted by eating certain foods. We hope to share a treasure of home recipes from various parts of India for the benefit of all.

Our immune system defends our body from various bacterium, viruses, and any other foreign bodies. We are all born with robust immunity, and what we eat can help us strengthen it. COVID-19 has truly taught us the importance of boosting our immunity with certain foods. 

Each of us have a special food recipe that we make for our families to strengthen their immunity. That one recipe that has been passed on from one generation to the next. So let’s all share those treasured recipes; Even if it does not taste the best, but still works wonders for our immune system!
