Jacek Plewa, General Manager, GFI, said: ?Healthy Farm was developed with the future of our children and our local communities in mind. As such, apart from offering families a range of healthy food choices, we aim to educate and focus on the well-being and healthy living of our kids. Tapping fun and educational ways, we seek to instill in our children the love of delicious and nutritious good food. We aspire to develop in them a mindset of prioritizing their health, making conscious decisions about their wellbeing, leading to a happy, long and fulfilling life. The Healthy Living Program seeks to educate our kids about the benefits of superfoods over other food ingredients and equip them with the ability to correctly identify healthy versus unhealthy food. We are happy to work with The Kindergarten Starters in this significant endeavor. Like us, the school also envisions a world where our children are empowered through education to lead a healthy lifestyle?. He added, being the first Emirati company to offer a healthy range of food products, GFI is gaining momentum and it also adheres to the attempts made by the UAE Government to improve the quality of life while maintaining a healthy lifestyle.
