Sun Life supports “Healthy Lunchbox Meal Design Competition 2024” to promote sustainable and healthy lifestyles and raise public awareness of diabetes prevention

Hong Kong, July 8, 2024 – Sun Life today announced the support of Diabetes Hongkong again via the donation of HK$490,000 to sponsor the “Healthy Lunchbox Meal Design Competition 2024”. It aimed at further enhancing public awareness of diabetes and advocating for diabetes prevention. Sun Life has been a long-term partner for Diabetes Hongkong, raising public awareness of living healthier lives through various community activities to nurture a society that embraces holistic wellness.

The Healthy Lunchbox Meal Design Competition has been well-received, with nearly 100 primary schools in Hong Kong taking part and with over 220 submissions received. Open to all primary school students and their parents in Hong Kong, it was divided into two groups – junior group (P1 to P3) and senior group (P4 to P6). The competition aims to nourish and educate the next generation about sustainable and healthy diets and lifestyles by encouraging them to design lunchbox meals with their parents. It also further raises public awareness and concern for people with diabetes, as part of supporting the disadvantaged in the community.

The prize presentation had been wrapped up successfully, and a gold, silver, and bronze award, along with five merit prizes, were given to winners in each category. Shopping vouchers were also presented as a recognition of their achievement. All the winning entries will be compiled into a recipe book. The recipe books will be distributed to all students in the schools of the top 3 winners from both junior and senior groups, all participating schools’ libraries and all public libraries to enable more people to be aware of diabetes prevention and achieve healthier lifestyles.

Irene Ho, Chief Marketing Officer of Sun Life Hong Kong Limited, said, “Sun Life has been dedicated to supporting diabetes prevention and care for many years, thus helping to foster healthier communities, and we see educating the younger generation as an important priority. We are delighted to work with Diabetes Hongkong to co-organize this parent-child healthy lunchbox meal design competition, engaging families and educating the next generation about the importance of a sustainable and healthy diet. We will continue to provide ongoing support for a variety of community initiatives, encouraging the public to practice healthy living.”

Dr Hue Siu Man, President of Diabetes Hongkong, said, “With extensive support from Sun Life, we have been able to attract a significant number of primary school students and their parents in this competition. In doing so, we aim to cultivate interest in and understanding of the importance of a healthy diet among young children, as well as to raise awareness of diabetes among the public. We are truly grateful for all participants and for the unwavering support of Sun Life, working together to promote public health and enhance public knowledge of diabetes.”
