With the aim of inculcating healthy eating habits and to draw attention to prevention of diabetes, RAK Diabetes Centre, Jumeirah, and RAK Hospital in Ras Al Khaimah are holding a fun-filled ‘Live Healthy Carnival” on Saturday, November 19, at their premises, a spokesperson from the hospital said.
Dr Raza Seddiqi, CEO of the Arabian Healthcare Group, said: “Children are the pillar of our society and it’s never too early to teach them good habits. We have taken a light-hearted approach to drive across a very serious message: the perils of an unhealthy lifestyle, stemming from eating junk food, an inactive routine, stress and smoking. Through children, we want the adults to understand that unless and until they set a good example for their kids and incorporate healthy habits which include eating nutritious food, an active routine and regular check-ups in their lives, few children will listen to their parents.”
