The new facility was inaugurated by Dr Shamsheer Vayalil, founder and managing director of VPS Healthcare.

He said: “I believe Keita can contribute towards a healthier lifestyle for the community in the UAE, especially for kids. The high prevalence of obesity in school children necessitates regular screening and monitoring for hypertension, dyslipidemia and diabetes, especially since these disorders are exceptionally common.”

Almost 33% of UAE children in the age group of 5 to 17 are overweight and obese.

Director of operations Renhil Krishnan said: “We have an in-house dietician, which continuously monitors the quality of food and ensures that the meals produced are healthy.”
