On Tuesday, the 6th of March , Al- Furqaan organised a workshop to create an awareness of healthy eating, nutrition and being active both in school and outside school. The workshop is designed for parents and children with focus being on the healthy body, the heart and digestive system, good nutrition, local activities available in the area and family fun activities.
Children were able to discuss ideas regarding health, suggest ways to eat healthier and how to be active with family members at home. The children were also able to try different nutrition such as vegetables and fruits and explain benefits to the body. Finally, children were able to engage in some fun practical activities that were inexpensive and practical to try at home with their respected family members
