Let’s Talk Nutrition

 

On the 22nd of October 2020, MWASA organised a Nutrition Talk for the CHSP* seniors. The talk was held in MWASA, with 27 seniors attending. The speaker, Sister Zuhrah Shafqat Ali spoke about the importance of eating well and staying physically active to improve general health and well-being.

 

She shared simple tips on how to enjoy a wide variety of nutritious foods daily. She explained the 5 food groups, and how to meet daily energy needs and lower the risk of developing chronic health conditions. The seniors were very engaged and participative during the talk. In fact, a number of them approached Sister Zuhrah after the talk to express their excitement in learning how to lead a healthier lifestyle.

Following the talk, Sister Zuhrah demonstrated on how to prepare a simple and healthy Mediterranean Salad. She also prepared a delicious butternut squash and chicken soup served with bread rolls.

The seniors had a wonderful time during the demonstration session as they were able to observe how simple it is to include lots of colourful vegetables into their foods.

Students ACE Salad Making

Wow!

Last week the ACE Students engaged themselves in promoting a healthy lifestyle by making a variety of sumptuous mouth watering salads using different combinations of freshly cut vegetables dressed with sauces and spices.

The overall lesson learned during the class was to add a portion of fresh salad vegetables into the daily diet.

The salads were then arranged into a colourful and enticing salad bar. Who doesn’t love a salad bar?!

The students showed a lot of enthusiasm in participating and exhibiting their creativity and skills. In fact, each participant seemed to be a connoisseur of salad owing to her own tastes and blending. 

In short, it was a wonderful get together and a fun activity which shows that our students are not only good in gaining knowledge and learning skills but have the ability of put them into practice with a vibrant performance and presentation.
