BIGGER and better than ever. That’s the verdict from the more than 2,000 children who attended Nestlé’s Kids Fest Summer Camp 2017.
Nestlé hosted 13 camps for children aged six to12 years during the July and August holidays at the Nestlé Sports Club in Valsayn.
The camp programme was packed with fun and excitement, with an emphasis on keeping the children physically active and engaged, complemented by educational sessions on nutrition and recycling.
A favourite item on the agenda was Recycling and Me which introduced the children to Nestlé’s Tetra recycling project and showed them how to get creative by recycling Tetra Pak packs into arts and craft items.
“Wherever we are in the world, Nestlé has one simple purpose — enhancing the quality of life and contributing to a healthier future,” Denise d’Abadie, corporate communications manager, Nestlé, said in a media release.
“Our Kids Fest Summer Camp is a highlight of the company’s annual calendar and it lines up perfectly with our purpose. It allows us to teach children how to enjoy a balanced lifestyle with nutrition, why physical activity is important and how to protect the environment.”
All of Nestlé’s star brands get involved in Kids Fest. The day starts with a complementary breakfast featuring Nesquik cereal and Klim UHT and children learn all about the nutritional importance of breakfast from Nestlé’s nutritionist. Maggi sponsors a lunch break with Orchard juices and later in the day there’s the Milo Fun Circuit featuring hop scotch, football and dancing.
