We know simple health education is important. The food you eat can have a major impact on your health. Smart food choices help provide the energy you need to enjoy life and all it has to offer. In addition to reducing your risk for diseases such as heart disease, stroke, diabetes, certain types of cancer, osteoporosis etc good food also nourishes brain well.
Right thinking habits that are introduced through THINK SMART part, help children dealing with own anxiety and stress + also help to pick up the signals in other children at an early stage. This may prevent a lot of mental health problems in the future. Suicidal attempts have become more prevalent now and are clearly undesirable. We hope with better coping techniques taught through our THINK SMART programme will minimise these.
The programme is designed to have more sefl-confidence and better self-esteem and hopefully improve the school results and also better future job prospects for children.
