EatSmart School Accreditation Ceremony 2017

The "" (ESS) Campaign jointly organised by the Department of Health (DH) and the Education Bureau (EDB), together with the "EatSmart School Accreditation Scheme" (ESAS) which was launched under the Campaign, have gained support from the education sector over the years to create an environment conducive to healthy eating, in order to promote the healthy growth of school children.

For this year's Healthy Eating Forum, Ms Sylvia Lam (Chairman of the Hong Kong Dietitians Association) delivered a talk on "Sodium reduction in school lunch".

DH and EDB presented awards to schools which have achieved accreditation in the school year 2016/17, and the "Award for Continuous Promotion of Healthy Eating at School" to nine schools achieving the "EatSmart School" status for the third time consecutively.
