Here’s what a nutritionist wants you to know about iron

If you want your mental and physical health to be at its best (and who doesn’t?) then you need iron. Iron keeps your muscles strong, your blood healthy, helps oxygen circulation, improves cognitive function, boosts immunity, and treats fatigue and anaemia. In short, if you take enough iron you’re less likely to get sick and more likely to be productive, with better-looking skin, hair and nails to boot.

At 5am Bandera Menike and her two daughters begin their day. As dairy farmers, it’s vital that they start work early in order to milk their 11 cows and one buffalo at least twice a day. Feeding, cleaning, working the fields and veterinary care revolves around these milking times. And unlike most dairy farms in Sri Lanka, there are no men in this all-female team.

A family business

Menike and her husband started dairy farming in the late 1980s, as a way of earning a living when employment opportunities in the country were scarce. “The country was at war and my husband couldn’t find a job anywhere,” she says. “So to secure a steady income, we both started dairy farming." But in 2005, when her husband was taken ill, Menike took over sole responsibility for their business.

*OOH (Out of Home) refers to consumption of food out of home, in establishments like restaurants, hotels, canteens etc.

Coffee is fast becoming the beverage of choice among Sri Lankan millennials. Whether it’s quiet reflection in solitude, a good conversation with a colleague or catching-up with an old friend, many young adults prefer making these connections over a great cup of coffee. Ask them why and they’ll tell you it holds an aspirational appeal; sure, it tastes great, but it is also a social experience, a statement, a lifestyle choice.

Coffee drinkers are increasingly looking for greater choice, better quality, and simple convenience. For those who don’t have the time or inclination for brewing at home or visiting a café or vending machine, instant coffee is their go-to for instant refreshment.

The allure of instant coffee, very much a part of the lifestyle of young urban Sri Lankans, reflects its rich and innovative history.
