Children to explore Health Awareness with Kidzania | Play at KidZ's Health Variable Programme

A rare occasion of attending a launch with the kids!

As a mother of two now, nothing matters more than the health and well-being of my kids. I was honored to be invited to Kidzania's recent launch of a KidZ Health Variable Programme and trust me when I say that im excited about the news. As a mother now, Kidzania is a safe zone for my kids where there can learn and explore, and now with this program, they would be touching base on health and to me, small actions like this would really go a long way for the little ones. 

Only until 28th of August 2022, KidZania Kuala Lumpur's "KidZ & Health" initiative aims to raise awareness on health topics to show how good physiological health and wellbeing can indeed be a cornerstone to a wonderful and fulfilling life. With that being said, I believe in starting them young and I do hope that Kidzania would sustain interesting programs such as these to further let the kids be curious as they grow. 

As simple as talking about healthy habits, even to adults, it can be a seemingly an uninteresting topic. But have you ever thought about how this topic can actually be more interesting? I started being very cautious about what i eat considering that my family has a record of health issues, so to live a better life, it's always good to be aware of the lifestyle we choose to practice. For the kids, on the other hand, this topic can actually be more relatable and exciting with KidZania! The programme presents a line-up of activities set to educate little participants in fun and engaging ways through play. These activities are broken down into three segments – Nutrition, Health, and Fitness, where kids will partake in activities specially designed to arouse and engage the curiosity and interest of young, inquisitive minds. 

Little Mikayla here who is just turning 3 in a week found these programs really exciting actually as she explores the importance of hygiene through role play. Though the center would be more suitable for bigger kids, I was actually surprised by how intrigued a 3-year-old can be when it comes to being hands-on to understand simple things such as how sanitizer keeps germs away. As an adult, I would say that we should not underestimate the minds of the little ones we're raising, and my daughter here keeps surprising me every day because I let her. 

Leah Choy, 13yo baker Chef

By the way, present at the launch event was 13-year-old baker Chef Leah Choy - who realized the importance of championing good health from an early age. The young baker with a big heart made headlines with her inspiring story after she started baking and selling cupcakes at the tender age of age four to raise funds for her sister’s medical treatment. At the launch, Leah conducted a live demonstration of her very own nutritional recipe that can easily be replicated by any child or parent at home. She was joined by the newly appointed mayor of KidZania Kuala Lumpur, Mara Whittaker.

“Through this exciting and captivating program, kids will be able to better understand for themselves how to lead a healthier lifestyle. This is the perfect platform to bring to life a topic that can be often overlooked in fun and relatable ways. It is our hope that kids will be able to grasp the importance of healthy habits and practice it in their everyday lives. Rather than just listening to parents preaching it every day, children will now be able to experience it hands-on here,” said Mara.

Staying true to KidZania’s ‘Learn Life Today’ philosophy which champions early ‘real-life experiences through hands-on role-play engagements and opportunities, the KidZ & Health variable program will incorporate the involvement of KidZania Kuala Lumpur’s partners to feature a slew of engaging activities centered around the facets of nutrition, fitness, and health, which directly engages children to drive home the key building blocks of leading happy and healthy lives - which they will be able to inculcate for life! These include Avisena, Cuckoo, Danolyte, Kodomo, Optimax, Mission Foods, ESCAPE, and Subway.

One of the cooking demonstrations over the weekend

Through the programme, kids will be able to partake in activities that include, among others, the preparation of grocery lists and picking good food sources, learning about nutrition labels, engaging in cooking demonstrations, heart-pumping Zumba dances, learning proper brushing techniques, as well as getting an eye and general health screening. The programme will also feature SeminarZ, which will take the form of weekend workshops at the KidZania theatre featuring health, nutrition and fitness experts. These workshops will also be broadcasted online via KidZania Kuala Lumpur’s social media platforms.

Children and their parents also stand the chance to win tickets and cash prizes by carrying out two simple home experiments focusing on dental health and nutrition. Among the prizes include cash prizes of up to RM3,000 and a SimPass – an annual pass to KidZania Kuala Lumpur, ESCAPE Penang, and ESCAPE Petaling Jaya. Be sure to create some interesting content and who knows, you might win a special pass for the kids!
