Earlier, as part of its efforts to educate students on the benefits of physical activity, the Nutrition Unit recently visited the Patience Mon Repos Combined School and engaged the students in educational talks and fun-filled physical activities.

Chief Nutritionist Lisa Hunt says this initiative is necessary and believes making physical activity fun and creative will encourage students to continue exercising and remain healthy.

“We realized that children are very inactive. Especially as the summer is just around the corner, we want to encourage them to be more physically activity and so whatever we are teaching them here today is that we want them to know that physical activity does not always have to be structured. You can have fun activities, for example, today we did hula hoop, hop pooch, we did skipping with them and a number of activities that they quick enjoyed.”
