A pin-up for good health

21 October 2008

AL-HIDAYAH Islamic School student Qatada Khan proved he knows good health when he won a state-wide award in the Year 1 to 2 category in the Go for 2 & 5 Poster Competition.

Run by Foodbank, the competition attracted 400 entries from 17 metropolitan, regional and remote schools and Qatada’s was chosen as the best in his category.

The Bentley school will continue its commitment to healthy eating this week when it runs a Foodcents Cooking Program event for parents and students, helping to share advice on finding and cooking healthy foods.

“Eating plenty of fruit and vegies not only contributes to good health, but also protects against a number of diseases and helps maintain a healthy weight. We need to challenge our kids to increase their fruit and vegetable consumption,” principal Abdullah Khan said.

The Foodcents Cooking Project covers a range of foodrelated topics, including basic nutrition principles, food budgeting and cooking skills.

Mr Khan said encouraging children to make meals and snacks based on fresh healthy ingredients such as fruit and vegetables cost a lot less than buying ready-prepared meals and snacks.

“Children are also more likely to eat something they have helped prepare themselves,” he said.

“Even younger children, with the supervision of an adult, can assist with making simple, healthy summer treats like fruit smoothies, fruit kebabs, summer salads, stir-fries and salad wraps.”

The Cooking Project for students, teachers and parents will be held at the school tomorrow .

One session will be for parents and teachers from 9-10.30am and other for students from 10.30am-noon.
