‘A healthy outside starts from the inside.’
Delhi Public School, Jaipur VDN branch organized the 'Health Week' from Monday, 1st July 2019 to Friday, 5th July 2019 for the students of classes Nur – II. The objective of the activity was to instill good eating habits and to say 'No' to junk food. To inculcate healthy eating habits and to motivate our young learners to eat a balanced diet, the little ones were encouraged to bring healthy tiffin daily that included vegetable sandwiches, fresh fruits, stuffed parathas and dry fruits.
To make the children understand the harmful effects of using mobiles, a talk show on ‘Say no to Mobiles’ was held by their teachers. An activity, ‘Hand wash and Brushing Teeth’ was held to inculcate the habit of maintaining personal hygiene. To further encourage them to go the healthy way, a session on health and hygiene and developing good eating habits was taken up by the school doctor. A gamut of fun filled activities like ‘Drawing and Colouring’, ‘Collage Making’ and ‘Nutritious Food Party’ were enjoyed thoroughly by the children which helped them to explore their artistic self and learn through practical aspects.
To restate the fact that ‘a healthy mind resides in a healthy body’, yoga session, laughter session and meditation session were conducted where children learnt to be fit and active. The whole week was informative, fruitful and a good learning experience for the children to lead healthier and happier lives.
