Family Holidays

Health is at the forefront
April 2015 1366

Being healthy isn’t just about staying in shape, it’s also about engaging youngsters in fun, interactive initiatives to acquire a taste for a healthy lifestyle.

On the occasion of World Health Day on April 7, Mövenpick Hotels & Resorts is offering Power Bites cooking classes for children at 11 properties in the Middle East and Asia. Power Bites is Mövenpick’s special menu for children, featuring nutritious meals that are presented in a fun, entertaining way. During this exciting cooking class, parents and kids can learn together about how to create delicious, wholesome lunchbox snacks and dishes.

Each class includes at least two easy recipes from clown pizzas, flavoured organic yoghurt, whole-wheat tortilla snakes, pancakes or sandwiches which take the shape of kitty cats, caterpillars and birds.

“Healthy food can be loads of fun,” says Peter Dresher, vice-president, food and beverage, Middle East and Asia. “By sharing nutritious lunchbox ideas in a fun way, we hope children will associate being healthy and its benefits with enjoyment and positive memories from a young age.”

In other health news, thousands of families were awarded a total of 40kg gold on March 15 for winning a weight-loss contest organised by the government of Dubai. Collectively, the winners shed 40 tonnes of excess weight in the contest, which was held in late 2014.
