Wilmar Bouhandelaars – Health Promotion Week

On behalf of our group of second-year honours dietetics students at the University of Cape Town, we would like to thank you for your contribution towards the success of our health promotion week at Sea Point Primary. The aftercare learners were delighted and appreciated the efforts we put in throughout the week of the 27th to the 31st of August 2018.

Your contribution had allowed us to fulfill our objectives for the week which were:

  • To emphasise on the importance of starting the day with a healthy breakfast & the importance of breakfast for a child’s development and growth.
  • To raise awareness of the negative health impact that too much added sugar can have on a child’s development.
  • To encourage the daily intake of dairy.
  • To teach them why it is important to consume fibre containing foods (especially vegetables) and to grow their own garden by giving each child a spinach seedling and the opportunity to plant them.

We had a very successful week, thanks to your help which would have been impossible to achieve without your precious sponsorship. We sincerely thank each company that sponsored us.
