What can be more thrilling for little ones to learn about the importance of strong bones and healthy teeth than through an animated story-telling and presentation? For the March holidays, Berrykidz took a trip to the Health Promotion Board (HPB) where they experienced an interactive workshop entitled, “Bright Smiles, Strong Bones”. This workshop aims to educate the children on healthy habits and diet to ensure they grow up strong and healthy, with a bright smile!
Featured act was a catchy presentation where the facilitator showed brittle chicken bones and soft egg shells. This illustration portrayed weak bones and teeth. It served as motivating factor for the little ones to keep their teeth and bones healthy and strong. To promote a healthy diet among the children, foods which are high in calcium were also shown.
The highlight of the excursion was when the SMOO cow mascot came out to greet everyone! The children could not contain their excitement at the sight of the life-sized cow mascot, cheering him on as he came out on stage. Next up, was a question and answer segment followed by a round of fun and exciting games, as children engaged themselves with new facts about keeping healthy and strong.
To end the fun-filled day, Berrykidz had a self-exploratory tour around HealthZone as they played enthusiastically in the recreational area and walked about looking at the health related exhibits. Before heading back to school, they enjoyed a cup of healthier Magnolia ice-cream at the garden terrace and each brought home a packet of SMOO milk.
It was indeed an eye-opening experience for the children as they learned the many ways to keep a healthy lifestyle while enjoying healthier versions of their favourite snacks. Till next time!
