A Winning Recipe … ADW Serves Up Healthy Breakfasts for All

7 months

The HCT-Abu Dhabi Women’s campus (ADW) combined health and nutrition with a love of good food, by organizing its Healthy Breakfast event for students, staff and faculty.

The Healthy Breakfast event was planned so as to encourage the ADW community to adopt healthy eating habits in their daily routines, as well as for members to share their creative ideas while showcasing their cooking skills.

The organizers made it a fun morning by arranging three competitions to participate in – “Smoothies on the Go”; “Customize your Omelet” and “Best Healthy Plate prepared from Home”. One lucky member from ADW staff and faculty was on hand to taste and vote for the best plate, the healthier smoothie and omelet according to the criteria of appearance, smell, taste and texture.

In addition, the organizers invited Pink Berry to assist the event, by serving frozen yogurt with different fruits flavors, and Jumba Juice to serve healthy juices and smoothies in addition to servings of healthy yoghurt.

Representatives from Doctor Nutrition were on hand to offer counselling and helping students and staff with giving healthy tips and awareness items and measuring their Body Mass Index.

At the end of event, Vouchers from Nike were given as prizes for the winners.
