Health and Nutrition Day organised by WMO Far East Youth Wing – WOW team.
50 women participated in this fun yet informative day. The day commenced with a discussion on nutrition and the benefits of eating right. As they say the hand that rocks the cradle rules the world, it’s important that the woman of the house knows exactly what to put on the plates. Food can be medicine or poison, a simple choice to eat healthier is often life altering and ensures a disease free existence.0504

The next segment naturally flowed into a live cooking demonstration where healthy recipes were exchanged. The women were taught how to make a low calorie meal options from home.


Games and activities such as food based riddles and brain storming sessions were held followed by lunch.07

A breast and cervical cancer awareness workshop was held for signs of early detection, prevention and cure.

06Finally the day ended on a DIY (do it yourself) fitness session for weight loss which women can easily do from the comfort of their homes.
Women’s empowerment is incomplete without women’s health and happiness. A healthy woman is a happy woman.
