HEALTH AND HYGIENE WEEK
Educating children on
good hygiene is the best way to avoid the spread of infection & disorders
and not just for childhood complaints, teaching the principles of correct
hygiene at an early age can keep individuals healthy in later life.
Hence, Fitness Fun - Health & Hygiene Week has
been conducted to incorporate and strengthen the habits of personal hygiene
among the children.
DAY I : SESSION BY DR. SHIVESH KUMAR
A fruitful session took place today by Dr. Shivesh
Kumar through which he gave a detailed explanation to the children on personal
cleanliness, a special emphasis was given on why & how to clean hands
through step-by-step demonsration which was actually enjoyed by our tiny tots.
It was a fun oriented learning by the students.
Day II : EAT HEALTHY - BALANCED DIET
There's no diet that will do, what eating healthy will do for you.
Good nutrition is an important part of leading a healthy lifestyle. Combined
with physical activity our diet can help us to reach and maintain a healthy
weight, reduce risk of chronic diseases and promote overall health.
So, to make the children aware of an adequate & varied diet to keep
healthy, an educational talk was delivered by Dietician Ms. Preeti Bali in
which she described about Balanced Diet, eating healthy and home made food. It
was an interactive and very useful session for the kids as they took keen
interest in learning new things about balanced food.
DAY III : HAND WASHING DAY
Hand sanitation is by far the best way to prevent
germs from spreading & to keep kids from getting sick.
The use of hand sanitiser is a habit that can help
keep us all exposed to fewer germs & therefore may decrease our chance of
illness. So, to inculcate this habit in children, they were made to use hand
sanitiser by the Class Teacher.

Apart from the activity mentioned above, a pep talk
on 'Let's protect ourselves' was also given to the children through which
recapitulation on personal hygiene was done and also, the students were asked
to use mosquito repellent patches, bands & odomos in order to get rid of on
going diseases like Dengue, chikungunya etc.
