In 2021 and 2022, NHSKids held two online webinars titled "Healthy Meals, Brilliant Kids" and “Eye-Eye Captain!”, which touched on the topics of healthy eating, eye health, digital habits and children’s behaviour.
NHSKids also organised a Recipe Contest for families in Kembangan Chai-Chee. This contest came about after the residents expressed their interest in learning how to ensure their children eat healthily. Residents – both adults and children – submitted their family recipes. Following which, these recipes were collated into a recipe book. Alongside these recipes, dietitians from NUH added their input on how to tweak these recipes towards a healthier approach. The recipe book also includes various nutritional tips and ideas, as well as how food can be used to promote the psycho-social development of everyone in the family. NHSKids also provided certain tips and services should any of the residents face certain difficulties in procuring food.
NHSKids hopes that this recipe book will be a source of inspiration and empowerment for the residents to consistently eat healthily, as well as embrace the positive functions food can play in our everyday lives!
On 29 May 2021, NHS Kids held a webinar titled "Healthy Meals, Brilliant Kids" in conjunction with SSO @ Bedok and Geylang Serai. Our attendees consist of service users of SSO @ Bedok and Geylang Serai as well as other social service agencies in the region.
For the first time, we had both our mentors as speakers for the webinar. Dr Chiong Yee Keow from NUH shared information on how to live and eat healthily whereas Dr Alicia Pon from NUS Social Work gave insight on what certain behaviour exhibited by children may mean. Following that, an exciting game of Kahoot was conducted where the top 3 winners won exciting prizes!
In May 2022, NHSKids conducted door to door goodie bag distributions at the rental flats of Kembangan Chai-Chee, to distribute daily necessities and pre-register families for the upcoming health screening event.
