On October 16th 2016, Peterhouse hosted an event for parents in Hong Kong to officially commemorate a collaboration with Peterhouse’s new Strategic Health Partner, The Adventist Hospital. In fact, Department Head of Food & Dietetics, Mr. Wing Wong, joined parents at Peterhouse to share his knowledge and expertise on child health and nutrition.
This event marked the first in our health series with Mr. Wong, as he set out on a journey to educate parents on a topic that is commonly overlooked in Hong Kong – nutrition! More importantly, why is nutrition so vital when it comes to your child’s health and how can a good diet facilitate the best possible environment for a young developing brain?
In this event, Mr. Wong explained the benefits of omega-3 oils for your child’s brain as well as DHA. More importantly, HOW parents can effectively implement these vitamins and minerals into their child’s diets were also explained and recommendations were provided. Remember, the brain is like your engine, and without the appropriate fuel, it will not run efficiently or effectively.
Let’s not forget that these exclusive health events are perfect opportunities for parents to ask any health-related questions and have them answered by an expert and health professional. Mr. Wong said himself, “if people leave these events still feeling lost or wondering what it is that we just discussed, then I will feel terrible! There is no such thing as a bad question.”
This was also the perfect time to introduce our new mascot, Peter Panda to our Peterhouse community! Peter Panda is here to assist your children when it comes to education, health, and admissions!
