Health 4 Life
The Health 4 Life project is designed to fight poor nutrition and obesity in school children. Due to numerous reasons such as time poor families, lack of nutrition education and the economic climate, children do not always receive an adequate breakfast. Increased knowledge about nutrition coupled with exercise will enable children to make healthy choices for the future.
Lack of breakfast causes children to lose concentration during the day. While lack of exercise is causing the rise in obesity. The H4 program will be implemented at the start of the 2012 school year. It will provide a nutritionally sound breakfast, equipment and supervision for daily exercise. This empowers children with the tools and knowledge to make better decisions towards a healthier life and therefore improve their quality of living. H4 endeavours to develop partnerships with local businesses creating a positive relationship to "fight the fuzzies" and help children continue the tradition of living longer than their parents.
