INMED’s Health in Action program with the Mondelēz International Foundation is teaching children in underprivileged communities of Johannesburg and Port Elizabeth, South Africa that getting daily physical activity is one way to lead a healthy life. In this primary school-based program, children learn educational messages about nutrition, physical activity and healthy lifestyles through hands-on, skills-based activities, including the development of school gardens.
At this Fun Day at Diepsloot Primary School in Johannesburg, students experience the unbridled joy of games, relay races and exercise. These Health in Action Fun Days include prizes and medals for every student as well as a sports “goody bag” containing rugby balls, soccer balls and netballs for the school. Health in Action has reached 100,914 children in 116 schools.
