Speaking at the Courts Fun Run at My Suva Park over the weekend – Minister Dr Ifereimi Waqainabete says he’s very keen on the health of Fijians.
Dr Waqainabete says Fiji is a sports loving nation but it’s also important to focus on the health aspects of things.
He says parents need to ensure their children exercise well and are fit on a regular basis.
“It’s important for us to live longer and live healthy and have a better and also an improved quality of life. For the benefit of our children, benefit of our grandchildren and the benefit of the nation. We have so much to give back to this nation and the only way we can give back is to live long and use that expertise to give back to this nation.”
The Minister has also urged mothers around the country to be carefully of the food that’s consumed within the household – as it’s crucial for all members of the family to stay healthy.
