Students enjoy a “Fun Day” to Put Health into Action

healthinactionday2016More than 400 children from three schools in Diepsloot, South Africa, played, danced and competed in a “Fun Day” of physical activities topped off by a tasty, healthy lunch. At the Fun Day event, hosted by INMED South Africa to celebrate the launch of its Health in Action program, students were encouraged to stay active by playing games that kept them on their feet, such as soccer and hopscotch, while also dancing to music provided by a DJ, enjoying a bounce house, and more.

Through the Health in Action program, supported by the Mondelēz International Foundation, schools are incorporating lessons about nutrition and physical activity into their curriculum to teach students about the importance of healthy eating and healthy lifestyles—and to encourage them to share those lessons with their family members.

The program meets a real need, as South Africa’s children face a growing crisis of obesity while still confronting hunger and malnutrition. In response, INMED’s Health in Action program is working with 100,000 children in more than 100 schools in the metropolitan areas of Johannesburg and Port Elizabeth to promote healthy and lasting changes in a way that makes learning fun.

“The [Fun Day] was quite pleasant, especially for the kids,” said one fourth-grade teacher.… Read the rest

Empowering Schools to Educate, Train and Sustain

Meyerton – Air Products South Africa’s investment in a 224m2 aquaponics system at the Randvaal Primary School in Daleside proves to be a successful model for schools to teach children the skills of producing their own vegetables and for the school to become self-sustainable.

Teacher and learners at the Randvaal Primary School in Daleside, Midvaal, who are extremely motivated by their successful cucumber crop of more than 75kg in last December, attended a training session and planted vegetables seeds last week.

Air Products, in partnership with INMED, committed to the project at the school early last year, which is aimed at educating learners on health and nutrition as well as providing a platform to teach them grow their own vegetables. The basis of the programme at Randvaal Primary is an aquaponics system, but they are also exposing the children to growing vegetables in tyres and herbs in wall gardens. Aquaponics teaches children to grow their own fresh vegetables in a way that is quick, energy efficient, chemical free and environmentally friendly.

Randvaal Primary makes use of the vegetables to supplement the school’s feeding scheme adn is hoping that the programme will eventually become a platform for job creation and sustainability for the greater community.… Read the rest
