Continuing its ongoing commitment to promote good nutrition and healthy lifestyles, Nestlé hosted a health and wellness event at the Hayya! fitness club in Dubai’s Meadows Village to raise public awareness about good nutritional habits and emphasize the importance of maintaining an active lifestyle.
100 ladies took part in the consumer awareness program, which was organized by Nestlé Consumer Services as part of Nestlé’s “Eat Right Live Well” (ERLW) initiative, a region-wide effort aimed at empowering families to make healthier food choices and follow healthy lifestyle habits.
The program sought to educate participants about nutrition and lifestyle essentials by communicating the “5 Great Steps to Healthy Living”, which are at the heart of the “Eat Right Live Well” initiative. Renowned wellness expert Dr. Ryan Penny delivered a talk with practical advice around the five steps, which include: Eat a variety of foods; Be active at least 30 minutes a day; Drink 8 glasses of water everyday; Have breakfast everyday, and; Maintain a healthy weight. After the talk, the ladies participated in a Zumba fitness session; an energy filled workout, followed by a healthy breakfast offered by Nestlé.
“The program aimed to demonstrate how you can lead a healthy and balanced lifestyle by following simple, everyday steps – such as eating right and being physically active” said Maiada El Shahawy, Consumer Services Supervisor for the UAE at Nestlé.
The “Eat Right Live Well” initiative draws on Nestlé’s world-leading expertise in nutrition research and product development and brings together several of the company’s nutrition-focused programs under a single umbrella to benefit consumers around the region. The initiative focuses on raising public awareness of healthy nutrition and lifestyle habits through information-based brand communication and through a series of targeted initiatives such as awareness campaigns, educational consumer events, Nutrition, Health and Wellness driven website, and collaborations with public bodies in the region.
