Hanoi (VNA) - A contest has been launched for children aged five to 12 to paint their favourite food and meals.

Entitled “We Paint The Buds”, the competition’s best paintings will be displayed on October 27.

Through the contest, children can make choices on food, display their right to adequate nutrition and their opinions on nutritious meals.

The contest is being held by the Research Centre for Management and Sustainable Development (MSD Vietnam) and the For Vietnamese Stature Foundation.

As a part of the contest, a workshop was held recently at the Hermann Gmeiner School in Hanoi.

Tran Hong Diep, co-ordinator of the foundation, said that through the contest and related activities, parents could encourage children to eat nutritiously.

“It’s a good chance for parents and children to connect and take part in activities for a healthy lifestyle,” she said.-VNA
