Gulf English School hosts healthy breakfast bonanza.

Tribune News Network The Gulf English School (GES) held an event for students and faculty members to raise awareness about the importance of eating breakfast. The event also aimed to promote the importance of a healthy and balanced diet. Pupils from reception to Year 13 arrived at the school to a buffet of healthy food items for breakfast served at the Infant, Junior and Secondary Schools. The attendees were enlightened about essential nutrients and food groups. They were also engaged in tasks that enabled them to evaluate their food intake and learned how to make healthy food choices. They also learned how to use the 'Eat Well Plate' to assess if they were making appropriate food choices at individual meals and throughout the day. The two key messages that the pupils took from the event were: Breakfast is essential to fuel the body to learn effectively and maintain good health, and that food throughout the day must be balanced among the five food groups to maintain health and reduce the chance of acquiring disease. The event also provided the pupils the chance to spend social time with their peers over breakfast and further develop their relationships with their teachers.
