107 Kids from the Los Micos Rural Center
in Colombia having fun while learning about eating properly and about healthy lifestyles through the “Nutresa Quiere a los Niños” (Nutresa cares for children) program.
One hundred and seven children from the Los Micos Rural Education Center in Titiribí, Colombia, solidify their values and learn to eat properly. They strengthen their minds and bodies and, through relevant, simple and assertive messages, project what they want while they grow up.
By studying the booklet created as part of Grupo Nutresa’s healthy lifestyles promotion strategy, the kids have fun while learning about healthy eating habits, hygiene practices and physical activity with drawings, stage plays, classroom exercises, games and sports practices.
This process transcends classrooms and, with the support from teachers and parents, it enables the adoption of healthy lifestyles.
Beatriz Elena Muñoz Arenas, director of the Los Micos Rural Education Center.
The “Nutresa Quiere a los Niños” (Nutresa cares for children) program promotes healthy lifestyles based on fundamental subjects such as balanced eating habits, physical activity, hygiene practices and sharing as a family. In 2018, the program reached 92 education institutions in Colombia, benefiting approximately 6.000 students from high-vulnerability and difficult-access rural areas. Additionally, eighteen community-based art festivals were organized in urban territories, with an attendance of 7.804 kids.
