Student learns vital life lessons

     He may be only 7 years old, but Primary 2 student Mok Cheuk-cheung has already learned a vital life lesson: being overweight is not healthy. With the help of his EatSmart accredited school, he has also mastered the two tools for keeping fit, a healthy diet and regular exercise.

     In kindergarten, chubby Cheuk-cheung's round face drew the attention of a talent scout who selected him as a child model. But weighing 34 kilograms then - the most he has ever weighed - did not make him a model child.

     More than 200 primary schools have participated in the EatSmart School Accreditation Scheme, which also earned special recognition from the World Health Organization last year for its contribution to building a healthy city.

     In an interview with, Cheuk-cheung and his mother describe how they manage his diet and exercise together, to help Cheuk-cheung get fit for life. The story appears today (March 17) on in both text and video format.
