Yogyakarta – Amid the excitement of New Year celebration on Sunday, January 1st, 2012, Nutrition Education Program of One Earth – Sari Husada was back at Wahana PAUD Timur Taman Pintar. The activities held every week at 09:30 to 12:00 P.M. have reached the third session. The theme for this session was Me & The World.
Not long after preparation had been completed, the visitors of Taman Pintar were arriving at Wahana PAUD Timur to enlist as participants in these activities. Some children appeared very enthusiastic to go straight in and join the Children’s Party. The children started the occasion by gathering together in a circle and holding each other’s hands and then singing. They looked joyful when the elder brothers and sisters started to teach them about how to pretend to be a big tree. It was a team work which involved two children to work together in order to stand straight perfectly. And coloring the professions’ pictures became the last activity of the children.
No less enthusiastic than their children were the parents, who were also coming to attend the Parenting Programs about Knowledge of Nutrition, which in the opinion of some parents who’ve followed this program said, “This is a great show; I just knew that nutrition balance is very important”. There were also people who came into this event because they have felt the benefits of the exercises given to them. The parents also used this event to ask questions to the doctor who became a facilitator concerning health problems such as the importance of drinking a lot of water.
