Prudential Singapore, KidSTART extend nutrition programme
Beneficiaries have been receiving fresh produce since May this year.
Prudential Singapore and KidSTART Singapore have extended their joint nutrition programme for another year which will see around 1,300 families benefiting from the programme, an announcement read.
Since May this year, beneficiaries have been receiving fresh produce deliveries and guidance on preparing healthy meals.
Each care pack includes fresh fruits and vegetables as well as a recipe card with instructions on how to prepare meals using ingredients included in the pack.
In addition, each family is receiving a model plate that depicts the recommended proportion of the major food groups in an ideal meal. The plates have been produced in consultation with KK Women’s and Children’s Hospital and KidSTART.
A total of 2,000 plates will be distributed by the end of the year, with each child in the programme receiving a plate, the insurer said.
Prudential will also be hosting a series of online workshops throughout the year, aimed at providing families and Prudential volunteers continuous guidance on healthy cooking and eating.
