Nutrition, Health & Hygiene Training
A one-day training on nutrition, health & hygiene was recently held for BSF families from Champi, Nepal. The main objective was to help improve the health and nutrition of all the family members and to have a bit of fun in the process.
BSF families participated in discussions and activities as they learnt about the importance of good health, personal hygiene, and eating nutritious food. Physical exercise was also emphasised and encouraged. In the middle of the day, after a yummy lunch and a break, everyone took part in some physical exercise to burn fat.
The importance of maintaining good personal hygiene was taught. The participants learned how to brush their teeth properly and how to wash their hands according to WHO guidelines.
A fully equipped first aid box was provided as a gift to each family during the training. All the details about the medical kit and how to use it properly were explained with practical demonstrations.
At the end of the training, Saraswati, one of the BSF participants shared, “A few months ago, when my son was sick and had a high fever, I didn’t have a thermometer at home and I could not go to medical stores due to the pandemic. I was worried about his fever. Now that I have received this thermometer, along with all the other medical supplies in the first aid kit, I will be using them during such emergency conditions. Thank you for teaching us such important lessons to help improve our health and lifestyle.”
