[Rise & Shine] Introduction


Do you know? Based on a recent survey conducted with 363 parents of primary school students in Singapore, 1 in 3 primary school students do not eat breakfast daily. & as your child grows older, he/she is more likely to skip breakfast.


How is this a problem?

According to research, children who skip breakfast:
- tend to be listless & lose concentration in class;
- are likely to be moody & temperamental; &
- are at a higher risk of weight problems in later years.

To raise awareness of this issue, a group of final year students from NTU Wee Kim School started Rise & Shine Breakfast Campaign, a community effort to promote healthy breakfast eating on a daily basis among children aged 4-12 years old.

Their efforts include:

Ambient Installations
“What have our kids been eating?” exhibitions @ libraries, malls & primacy schools.
Storytelling Sessions
To educate young children on what constitutes a healthy breakfast @ libraries.
Performances
Spreading their messages with educational & fun theatre performances @ libraries & primary schools.
Cooking Demos
Demo for parents & kids on how to prepare a quick & healthy breakfast @ libraries.
Breakfast Song
A fun & catchy song with lyrics to educate kids on the importance of a healthy breakfast @ libraries & primary schools.
