As part of a national campaign to raise awareness on healthy eating, ‘nutrition counseling buses’ in Tehran are stationed at a number of main intersections in the metropolis of 12 million until the end of the current week.

Available across the city from 9am to 4pm, specialists on board help people with queries as well as conduct tests to check for blood pressure and blood sugar, Sepidonline reported.

The move is in cooperation with the Education Ministry, state broadcaster IRIB, State Welfare Organization, municipalities, and the health departments at the Islamic Republic of Iran Army and the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps.

The campaign aims to encourage the general public to cut down on consuming sugar, salt, and fats and to increase their daily intake of vegetables and fruit in order to check the rate of non-communicable diseases in the country.
