~ Staying Healthy Together with NHLC ~

National Healthy Lifestyle Campaign 2011 was launched at Sengkang Community Club earlier this morning with Deputy Prime Minister, Mr Teo Chee Hean as the Guest-of-Honour.

The campaign aims to educate and encourage Singaporeans to have a healthy lifestyle and integrate these habits into their daily lifes.

There are various sections promoting healthier food choices, free sampling of various hawker food with a healthy twist, sports & play area, free BMI and blood pressure checks and you can also get a free Healthy Lifestyle goodie bag by collecting at least 3 stamps in joining in the fun at the stations.

Denver & Gladys were guided by the volunteers to look out for the "Healthier Choice" label when going grocery shopping with Daddy & Mommy. Check out the FAT ATTACK facts to find out how many teaspoons of fat a plate of chicken rice or deep fried chicken wings contains.

After a hearty meal, time to do some work-out. 

Have you heard of iDAT? The Interactive Diet and Activity tracker (iDAT) is a new smartphone application that is designed to help Singaporeans keep track of their health and diet.

You can key in your height and weight profile and it measures your BMI. iDAT also allows you to enter the type of food and work-out you have daily and gives its calorie recommendations based on the body types of Asians as well as the working lifestyle of Singaporeans.

The Healthy Lifestyle campaign attracted a big crowd and long queues can be seen at the stations where everyone seems to be keener to get their booklet stamped. :) We also joined in the fun and also collected our Healthy Lifestyle Bags (*While stock last) which contains a lot of goodies within!

The National Healthy Lifestyle Campaign is on-going till tomorrow. Admission is Free.

Venue: Sengkang Community Club (Hardcourt)
Date: 22nd Oct (11am - 8pm), 23rd Oct (9am - 8pm)
