Students at the Kingstown Preparatory School (KPS) have been exposed to ways in which they can eat healthier through a World Food Day exhibition that was held at the school.
Mrs. Abraham noted that this exhibition exposes children to local foods and promote healthy eating habits.
The Agriculture Minister said local “farmers of SVG will be willing to work with primary schools in the country to start to have children eating better at an earlier age.”
Richards also took the opportunity to invite persons to Agri Expo SVG 2019 that will be held at the E. T. Joshua Tarmac from 16th – 19th October, 2019.
The United Nations Food and Agricultural Organization (UNWHO) Representative Dr. Colleen Phillips in her remarks pointed out the theme for this year’s World Food Day celebrations “Our Actions are our future, Healthy diets for a zero hunger world,” and encouraged students to choose foods with less sugar and salt; and also implored them to eat more fruits and vegetables.
