Kids, parents and teachers present at the Luv FM Kids Festival were reluctant to go home as they could not get enough of the fun packed 2019 edition.
KiddieFest, as it is popularly called, saw kids engage in various activities like dancing, poetry recital, drama, swimming and riding an electric train, something they hardly get to do.
The event organised on Ghana’s 62nd Independence Anniversary, took place at the at the Banivilla Function ground at Kentikrono in Kumasi in the Ashanti Region.
This year's event also came with a health package for patrons, free screening and health talks.
Teachers of basic schools in Kumasi and parents were thrilled to see their wards actively take part in the fun-filled activities.
It's been full of entertainment here for children from Ark Academy and Christian Academy from Bebu and Anloga Junction, Salem Educational Complex, and Knowledge Hub Academy, Domeabra.
Other participating schools include Bright Future Internationa School, Nana Serwaa and Naasei Educational Complex from Ahodwo and Adako Jachie, St. Michael's International School and SOS Herman Gmiener School.
However, it was not a day for only children to have fun but parents and teachers to take a break from their usual responsibilities of taking care of their kids and learn more about diet and nutrition.
Health experts, including Dieticians, Nutritionists and Paediatricians have been at hand to offer free advice and consultations on diet and nutrition to teachers and parents to help optimize the health of their wards.
Divine Eli-Coffie, a registered dietician with Fit and Smart urged parents and teachers to pay attention to what their wards eat since what children eat affect their general health.
He explained, "since food we eat affects our health, food can also be used to manage health conditions".
According to him, since food taken by children are sometimes empty calories, it is important for parents to access the dietary needs of their wards with the help of dieticians.
Berry Health Foundation in collaboration with Mckenzie Health Services and SAQS Healthcare Services and Firs Vision Eye Care are providing children and their parents as well as teachers with free eye, ear, nose, throat screening.
Children who could not hide their joy gathered around the dais to catch a glimpse of beautiful choreographic performances from Bright Future, Naasei, Salem and Nana Serwaa Educational Complex. What about performances from the Naasei Cadet corp? It is a scene to behold.
