Khyati's Health-O-Meter Says:

No one would ever miss having modaks, during the Ganesh Chaturthi festival, they are high in calories, but still the nutrition we get from coconut & jaggery can't be avoided. Fresh coconut is a quick source of energy & it also improves digestion & absorption of nutrients. They also keep your skin & hair healthy. Jaggery is also a good source of iron, thus good for anemics. If we neglect the number of calories, then 1 modak a day is always better than the chocolates or sweets which we get in the market.
