DUBAI / WAM

With the aim of promoting healthy diets and lifestyles, Dubai Health Authority (DHA) and Nestle have partnered to launch more than 40-TV episodes where tips on eating healthy and leading a healthy lifestyle especially among children will be shared with the public.
The partnership comes in light of the “Healthy Children 2021”, an initiative supported by Vice President and Prime Minister and Ruler of Dubai His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, which aims to fight obesity.
As part of the agreement, DHA launched a TV programme that will be broadcast on Dubai TV and Sama Dubai where doctors and nutritionists from the DHA will share advice on health and nutrition with members of society who strive for leading a healthy lifestyle in the UAE.
Nestle will contribute to the nutrition content development and production of 40 episodes, which will include health tips for children and cooking healthy meals for parents during the month of Ramadan.
The two-minute episodes will be aired before and after the news segment during the entire Ramadan in addition to August and October.
Humaid Al Qatami, Chairman of the Board and Director General of DHA met today with officials from Nestle at the authority’s headquarters. During their meeting Al Qatami said the authority has collaborated with companies and organisations through MoUs with the aim of reaching a healthier and happier society an objective that is shared by both the DHA and its partners including Nestle.
Al Qatami commended Nestle for supporting children’s health through spreading preventive advice using awareness videos and other awareness campaigns.
Yves Manghardt, Chairman and CEO at Nestle Middle East, reaffirmed company’s commitment to support DHA in playing a positive role in society and emphasizing the importance of promoting healthy diets and lifestyles. “We are happy to be part of this new initiative,” he said.
In line with the objective of enforcing a healthy lifestyle and eating habits, Nestle is also collaborating with DHA in the field of food science and nutrition through participating in scientific conferences, seminars and events.
