With close to 4.5 million Sri Lankan school children at home, e-learning has taken on a special new significance. To help parents teach their kids about nutrition, health, food safety and hygiene during this time, the Ministry of Education and Nestlé have launched an e-learning version of its long-running Nestlé Healthy Kids programme. Usually taught by Ministry educationists as an extra-curricular subject in public schools, the programme aims to raise awareness on nutrition and a healthy lifestyle among school children. It is Sri Lanka’s first official ‘Nutrition and Wellness’ (Poshanayai Suwadiviyai) e-learning programme, hosted on http://tiny.cc/ozucoz.
“As we close in on completing the 10th year of the Nestlé Healthy Kids programme, we are honoured to work together with the Ministry of Education to help raise a healthier generation. Today, more than ever, understanding and ensuring good health is essential. Childhood is where life-long habits are formed, and e-learning is clearly the future and the need of the hour in continuing education at this time. In this new reality, we’re proud to step up and launch Sri Lanka’s first official nutrition and wellness e-learning programme with the Ministry of Education” said Fabrice Cavallin, Nestlé’s Managing Director.
The e-learning programme features a modern, interactive learning style, with engaging content designed to support the school curriculum. It consists of six modules, with an assessment at the end of each, and is available in all three languages. Those scoring above 60% will receive an official certificate from the Ministry of Education.
