Project Overview

Aim: We hope to teach primary school children in our local community about the benefits of healthy living at a young age.
Background: We were concerned because there is a growing population of obesity and overweight people in our society and we want to do something about it. It is our hope that we can make a difference through positive role modeling, informed education and provision of novel activities.
Key Information: We are visiting local kindergartens and running a day with them to about healthy living. We will engage the students through games, interactive presentations, healthy eating sessions and we will send them home with a recipe book and a vegetable plant.
