EatSmart School Accreditation Ceremony 2018

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, Dr Amos CHEUNG (President of The Hong Kong Psychological Society) delivered a talk on "Obesity and psychological health in children".

DH and EDB presented awards to schools which have achieved accreditation in the school year 2017/18, and the "Award for Continuous Promotion of Healthy Eating at School" to nineteen schools achieving the "EatSmart School" status for the third time consecutively. Following the result announcement of the "Fruit Comic Colouring and Drawing Competition" of the "Joyful Fruit Month", winners were presented with their trophies and certificates.
