Turning The Kids Into Little Chefs Cum Nutritionists

They say that we are what we eat. Therefore the children should always be mindful about what they put into their mouths, although they usually disregard their health at such a young age.

With that in mind, the Global Youth Ambassadors from Indonesia have astutely organised a Superhero Nutrition event at the HiiChiiKok Foundation to teach the tots about the importance of nutrition.

Everyone can be a little shy at the beginning, so an ice-breaking session was first conducted, but with a twist towards food.

Two of the delegates had the ball rolling by delivering a narrative about balanced nutrition. They were setting the stage for the fairy godmother, one of their members who was dressed in a dainty costume complete with balloon wings. Like every fairy godmother, she came bearing gifts.

These came in the form of the various foods which she used as props to engage the children.

As she weaved her spell, more of the delegates came to share their knowledge about bacteria, germs and vegetables.

The teaching aids were not only effective but delicious nutrition boxes. Several nutrition boxes were provided, each containing a different division of nutritious food.

To ramp up the engagement level, the children were then given the opportunity to recount the food they ate. To create awareness, they will then have to relate it to the diseases that such food could cause.

But a lesson on nutrition is never complete without the opportunity to sample some of the healthy food mentioned. However, the children will need to work for their meals.

Together with the delegates, they made sandwiches which were burgeoning with egg, smoked beef and cheese.

A heavy tummy makes a happy tot, so they were very receptive towards the lessons being taught.

This fun-filled day is but one of the many enriching activities that the children indulge in on a weekly basis. For more information on the Hiichiikok Foundation, please go to: https://hiichiikokfoundation.com/
