On Friday June 27, Nestlé Congo with one of its partner schools “Ecole Source de Vie,” had the opportunity to talk about Nestlé Healthy Kids Programme at a fair. The event brought together an attendance of more than 1,500 people including, students, parents, and teachers amongst others.

From 10am until 3pm, kids and parents approached the HKP booth and asked questions about the program, nutrition, and physical activities. The fair also gave the programme an opportunity to interact with a wider audience within the academic field.

In the D.R. Congo, Nestlé Healthy Kids Program is run in partnership with the Ministry of Education as well as the Ministry of Health. The fair was the perfect way to end the academic year. We hope the activities and information shared was of great benefit to the children as they enter the long summer break and will practice and maintain healthy practices.
