Background

Studies in recent years have suggested that consuming an adequate amount of fruit can reduce the risk of heart disease, stroke and certain cancers. Thus, we recommend children between 6 and 12 years old to have one to two servings of fruit every day. In the last four years, the Department of Health partnered with various organisations to co-organise EatSmart@school.hk Joyful Fruit Day activities which gained great popularity among schools. This year, we are putting "family" as the theme and having the slogan "Fruit‧ Sweet‧ Home". We encourage primary students and their families to share fruits together on a daily basis.

Aim

Through model building, and home-school cooperation in particular, we aim to promote a regular habit of fruit eating at home. The school principal is requested to recommend a team of teachers, parents and students (number of team members ranging from 5 to 30) to take part in the competition. Under the theme "Fruit‧ Sweet‧ Home", the model should bring out the warm and loving atmosphere when the family enjoys fruits. Awards will be presented to schools and parents for outstanding performance.
