HCM CITY — The Việt Nam Red Cross Society’s Central Committee and FrieslandCampina’s Dutch Lady brand will continue with programme on nutrition education and physical development in the 2018-2019 school year.
This year it will be carried out in Hà Nội and the provinces of Hải Dương, Thái Bình and Thanh Hóa from July 1 through the year-end.
An expected 100,000 students at 160 primary schools and kindergartens will benefit.
This month the Red Cross in the capital and three provinces will organise training courses for teachers at local kindergartens and primary schools to enable them to teach their students about proper nutrition.
With its message of four groups of nutrients, three meals, two glasses of milk, one hour of physical exercise, the programme will teach students about a healthy lifestyle.
Last year more than 65,000 children benefited from the programme, which is expected to help the National Strategy on Development of Vietnamese People’s Stature achieve that goal as well as reduce malnutrition and obesity among children of pre-school and school ages. —VNS
