Over 300 RESIDENTS CELEBRATED THE LAUNCH OF BUKIT BATOK WELLNESS PROGRAMME & ACTIVE AGEING CLUB @BLK 162, BUKIT BATOK ST 11: 24 FEBRUARY 2013
Members of Bukit Batok Active Ageing Club gave a strong support to the launching of its Wellness Programme. The Health Promotion Board, Concern and Care Neighbourhood Link and Fei Yue Neighbourhood Link were also represented.
SINGAPORE: The Health Promotion Board (HPB) has launched a set of dietary guidelines for older adults aged 50 and above.
The aim is to help this group lower their risk of obesity, diabetes and heart disease.
This is the first time that dietary guidelines have been developed for seniors.
It highlights the need for a balanced and nutritious diet.
SINGAPORE: The "tray return" programme is set to expand with the Jurong and Yuhua constituencies now partnering Kopitiam food court to encourage Singaporeans to return their trays.
The food court at JCube in Jurong East now has four tray collection points and it is the first such tie-up between a grassroots organisation and a food court operator.
Kopitiam said it has introduced tray return stations at several other food courts over the last six months but response has been "lukewarm".
Together with our Advisor Mr David Ong, the volunteers brain-stormed for another year of activities and out-reach programs. Key thrusts:
(1) How to engage and extend outreach to the youths and young adults.
(2) How to better integrate residents from both public and private housing as a whole community.
(3) How to organize more novel quality events.
