    Hello dear students, teachers and parents ! In the months of February and March, all the BHS branches enthusiastically carried out a FRUIT AND VEGETABLE (FV) MINI PROJECT ! The idea was to select one theme for the health and nutrition focused activities of all schools in such a way that children not only learn more of the health giving fruits and vegetables, but also actually increase the intake of these nourishing foods. Each school adapted guidelines for this mini project given and conducted activities like salad and sandwich decoration, dabba party, FV Charts and skits giving messages on why these foods are important and how not having them harms our health, short talks given by children, dressing up as colourful fruits and vegetables.. and so on. Parents too were invited in few schools. Based on pictures and reports received from schools, here is a photo gallery depicting the variety of FV activities! Few school reports are awaited; they will appear in next update !

    This page is your authentic source of latest, science based updates related to promoting healthy food choices and active lifestyle for fitness in children and their families. Put together for you by experts at PRANALI Nutri-Communication (led by Dr. Shubhada Kanani), you will find nutrition updates, exercise and fitness tips, recipes, guidance for parents and much more.We also share Health-Nutrition activities carried out by the BHS branches.We look forward to your feedback and suggestions.
