Life Education New Zealand’s Nutrition Education Program

New Zealand, November 1, 2018 – The Herbalife Nutrition Foundation (HNF) has announced that it is making a donation to support Life Education New Zealand’s nutritional education program for students via a new teaching resource named ‘Harold’s Food Analyser App’.

The Herbalife Nutrition Foundation will provide Life Education New Zealand with a grant, which will enable the program to further develop the ‘Harold’s Food Analyser App.’ The App is designed to allow students to plan meals, explore different cultures, analyse the nutritional benefits that our bodies receive from various foods, and understand nutritional values. It will be used by more than 40,000 children in mobile classrooms over the next 12 months, providing an interactive experience and allowing teachers to utilise the technology in their classrooms, and encourage online use at home.

Shobie King, Herbalife Nutrition’s vice president/sub-regional general manager, Southeast Asia, highlighted that due to increasingly high rates of child obesity in New Zealand, as reflected in the New Zealand Government Health Survey 2016/17, around 1 in 8 children aged 2–14 years were obese (12%) and a further 21% were overweight. Children throughout the whole country are vulnerable to developing a range of health issues.

“This makes the App especially timely, and important,” said Shobie. “We are so proud that our contribution to Life Education New Zealand will contribute to helping New Zealand’s growing child obesity issue, and allow the organisation to continue their vital health and nutrition related educational programs. At Herbalife Nutrition, we aim to make the world a healthier and happier place through supporting organisations such as Life Education New Zealand.”

John O’Connell, Life Education New Zealand Chief Executive Officer, is thrilled to receive the donation from the Herbalife Nutrition Foundation to enable the organisation to continue to develop their program and resources for teachers and children.

“Child obesity doesn’t just impact on physical health but children’s mental health and wellbeing, education achievement, and ultimately their chance to achieve their full potential,” said John.

Life Education New Zealand is a charity that educates and empowers children to make healthy choices so they can live full and healthy lives. Every year they teach more than 250,000 children about their body, friendships, their identity, food and nutrition and helpful and harmful substances.

The Herbalife Nutrition Foundation is a not for profit organization which establishes partnerships locally and globally to bring good nutrition and nutrition education to children in need through financial and volunteer support. Life Education New Zealand will be the first New Zealand organisation and the sixth in Australasia to reap the benefits of HNF.

As well as Life Education New Zealand, Herbalife Nutrition Foundation currently also supports Power Community Limited in South Australia, The Infants’ Home in New South Wales, Lighthouse Foundation in Victoria, Perth Children’s Hospital Foundation in Western Australia and Sunshine Butterflies in Queensland.

Gordon Campbell: On What We Could Do For Hong Kong, If Only We Dared

There has been something repulsive about PM Jacinda Ardern’s assurances that our joint 5 Eyes criticism of China’s actions over Hong Kong – and China’s harsh reaction – are all well understood on both sides. According to Ardern, it has been a case of us saying the sort of things we’ve said before, them acknowledging our need to do so, and then them responding much as we would expect them to do. All neat and tidy. Frankly, if all of this is merely virtue signalling on our part, and huffy declarations of independence on their part, then what’s the point of this diplomatic dance..? More>>
