A colorful palette of food

Sep 02, 2011

Imagine how much healthier your meals would be if they contained many brightly colored fruits and vegetables.

Children in Korea are doing just that through the Nutrilite Health Watcher program, in partnership with Amway and 32 different social welfare centers. Kicked off with a $262,000 donation by Amway, the program will focus on improving the eating habits of children from low income families.

On August 26, 15 children from the Jayang Social Welfare Center participated in a Phyto Color Cooking Class. “Phyto” is short for phytonutrients, unique nutrients that come from fresh fruits and vegetables.

During the class, children cooked own dishes using only red, yellow, orange, green, purple and white vegetables. They learned tips for keeping fit and building healthy eating habits.

They also learned that a colorful palette of food can be … well … quite palatable.

Thanks to Yun-Hee Oh for sharing this story.

      On behalf of Jayang Welfare Center, Family Social Work Department, I would like to thank US Amway™ for its continuous support to our efforts on building healthy eating habits of children in need. Your commitment to help Korean children develop a brighter future is sincerely appreciated.

      Each year Jayang Welfare Center continues to advance its mission of helping people live better lives. We strongly believe a good nutrition at a young age will create healthy, smarter, and physically fit individuals committed to their society. Through our programs we have seen many lives changed for the better. In particular the Alticor’s ONE by ONE program has enjoyed great success in the past year.

      Our goal is to continue to make a difference in the lives of these families. With the help of donations from supporters such as you, we will continue to see great improvements. Your good intentions will continue to give forward for generations to come as these children become productive members of society—it will be a gift that keeps on giving.

      Thank you for being an important member of our organization. We wish Amway™ continued growth and prosperity in the months and years ahead.

      Sincerely,

      Yoon, Ji-Eun, Team leader
