As part of Danone’s “One Health. One Planet” vision, the company is calling for 1 million South African moms to pledge for Healthy Change to keep their families to live their best, healthy lives.
The pledge is simple:
1. Eat breakfast every day.
2. Eat more vegetables and fruit every day.
3. Have milk, maas or yoghurt every day.
4. Drink more water every day.
5. Move more every day.
You can pledge here, and it takes about 20 seconds. No one will be monitoring you to see how you do, but you will get tips, the opportunity to talk to other moms and also to ask nutrition experts for advice through live chats,
Marlinie Kotiah, a qualified dietitian, mom and head of corporate affairs at Danone says what we all kind of know – of two daughters and Head of Corporate Affairs at Danone, says, “Providing kids with good nutrition is not complex, just a return to the simple basics we all know. Danone is driving this with our #MillionMoms Pledge for Healthy Change campaign.“
She says that children think and talk like their parents, and it’s very likely they will inherit their parents’ eating habits too. The selections we make for lunch boxes, for snacks, for main meals all have a lasting impact on our children’s health.
Recent research noted in the latest 2018 Healthy Active Kids of South Africa Report Card that the incidence of poor health and conditions like diabetes are on the rise among children. The report also mentions the adverse impact of poor nutrition on “cognition” – the mental action or process of acquiring knowledge and understanding through thought, experience, and the senses. In other words, good nutrition is vital for success at school.
