PROMOTING HEALTHY LIVING AMONG YOUTHS. GET THEM TO ABANDON THEIR MOBILE DEVICES!

Dear A.S.S. Editor

Seems like the task force set up to study how young Singaporeans can be encouraged to adopt healthy habits have recommended that the young should get more opportunities to take part in physical activities, within and outside schools.

This includes getting the pre-schoolers getting an hour of physical activity a day, which will double what they are doing currently, and for the primary schools to have 2 hours of physical activities per week. The Early Childhood Development Agency will also impose nutritional requirements, such as providing fruits on a regular basis and not serving sugary drinks or deep-fried food to pre-schoolers. Students at all levels will also be encouraged to eat healthy food, with the school canteens playing their part by offering healthier food and drink options.

All these are good moves to get children and the youths to participate in more physical activities and adopt healthy habits. Although they miss the most important part. Get the youth to abandon their mobile devices the whole day while in school, otherwise, they will be engaged only in their social media and games on the mobile devices.
