Health Ministry Teams up with the Education Ministry to promote healthy eating habits among students – 10th Jun 2013

shot0003The Health Ministry has teamed up with the Education Ministry to see how best the two can work together to promote healthy eating among students.

Last Friday Guyana joined other countries in the region to mark Caribbean Nutrition Day which aims to promote better health for everyone by way of proper nutrition and exercise.

Through the Food Policy Division of the Ministry of Health, students were targeted as part of this year’s observance.

The Health Ministry hopes by promoting a healthy lifestyle, students can encourage adults in their homes also to change their eating habits.

The theme for this year’s Caribbean Nutrition Day was ‘Healthy Eating and Active Living: Creating an Enabling School/Work/Community Environment’.
