ELP kids at CPSGS, TMZ celebrated world food day by a simple yet impactful activity – Making a delicious fruit salad, mixed vegetable salad and pulses. The pivotal goal of the event is to advocate for equal access to good food and water by everyone. World Food day provides a platform for advocating actions to combat worldwide hunger, and enhance accessibility to nourishing food, endorse sustainable agricultural practices, emphasize the need to minimize food wastage, and understand the importance of eradicating malnutrition.
World food day is celebrated each year on October 16th to promote worldwide awareness and action for those who suffer from hunger and for the need to ensure food security and nutritious diets for all. To mark this zero hunger day, our children were delighted to make variety of salads and shared it with their peer group with great enthusiasm. This activity focuses mainly on raising awareness, encouraging kids to eat healthy food, and community engagement to build a resilient and sustainable food system. The star of the event was, of course, the fruit salad. A combo of fresh and colourful fruits -watermelon, strawberries, pineapple, kiwi, guava and grapes was prepared with love and care. Fruit salad was not only served as a treat to our eyes and also appetizing to eat. The variety of fruits in one bowl delighted our taste buds and also packed a punch of essential vitamins and minerals in their morning snack bowl. Boiled pulses were another highlight of this event. Pulses, such as lentils, chickpeas, and moong dhal, are not only tasty but also healthy. They are rich in protein and fiber.
Through this activity kids learnt the importance of food and reiterated their responsibility to not waste food. This World Food Day reminds us how fortunate we are to have food on our plates, let us value it and appreciate it.
