MOH: Breakfast Is Essential for Students
12 October 2017
The Ministry of Health (MOH) has stressed the importance of having breakfast meal on a daily basis for students, whether at home or school. Through an awareness infographic published on its Twitter page, MOH has highlighted that breakfast meal should contain some nutrients, including proteins, carbohydrates, vitamins and minerals, in addition to milk and dairy products, noting that this meal helps students grow properly, and increases their productivity, passion to learn and academic achievement.
This step comes as part of MOH's efforts, in collaboration with the Ministry of Education (MOE), to activate school health tasks; to maintain the health and safety of school students, and to enhance the concept of healthy food. Such awareness-raising activities come in continuation of MOH’s efforts to maintain the health and safety of all members of society, to promote health awareness, and to enhance healthy behaviors and healthy eating habits.
