Story-telling held to teach children importance of healthy eating
What better way to impart health lessons to children, than to conduct a story telling session, complete with mascots and fun stories.
Right before Nutrition Month ends, Inquirer Read-Along session was held in its main office in Makati, Saturday morning, to help children grasp the importance of eating healthy and taking good care of one’s body.
The meeting featured as readers Ann Abacan, principal of Sophia School in Meycauayan, Bulacan and chef Angelo Van Toorn, chief baker at the Academy of Pastry and Bakery Arts Philippines, Inquirer said in its report.
Abacan began the reading session with the story “I Don’t Like to Eat” by Excel Dyquiangco and Marcus Nada, which itells the story of how a young boy was taught of the value of healthy eating.
Van Toorn read “Hayan na si Kidlat,” to the children, a story about a young boy who was as swift but who later realized that he had a weakness. The story written by Russell Molina and illustrated by Ariel Santillan, the story imparts kids the significance of not skipping meals, especially the first meal of the day, breakfast.
Inquirer mascot Guyito was also present during the session, and ended the event with a dance number, entertaining about 50 kids in the audience.
