In promoting the sanctity of human life, the Qur'an-e Shariff says that good health, like knowledge, is a divine gift. The family unit nurtures the lives of its members, assisting them in their physical and spiritual endeavours.

The South Asian Food Survey provides nutrition composition information on dhals, curies, and biryanis cooked by Punjabi, Pakistani, Gujarati, Bangladeshi and Ismaili households. The Ismaili Nutrition Centre sets out to translate this data into diet — to convert the scientific facts and figures into user-friendly recipes and culturally appropriate dietary advice.
The aim of The Ismaili Nutrition Centre is to offer you practical dietary strategies that can reduce your risks of developing non-communicable diseases such as heart disease, diabetes and cancer, and to ultimately help you improve the quality of your life.
