A big thank you to ECAB for supporting us in the execution of our Childhood Obesity Awareness Prevention Project to Grades 4, 5 and 6 students at the Mary E Pigott School.
Students, through active participation, were able to make some simple but nutritous sandwiches and wholesome smoothies!
They were also taught the value and importance of the various food groups and use to avoid obesity!
For the students who don't like to drink water, they were taught how to prepare infused water, from which they were also able to sample!
They were then quizzed and quite a lot of prizes were awarded!
At the end, each student was presented with our District 'Eat well, move well for good health' booklet.
A big thank you to our facilitators Ms. Juanita James and Dr. Zoie Whyte🙏🏿
