Lady Julia ‘walks’ with queen-mothers in Kumasi

This year’s Lady Julia Osei Tutu Annual Nutrition Forum, has been followed up with a health walk and aerobic session, in Kumasi, to drum home the need to balance healthy eating with adequate physical activity in order to achieve optimal health benefits.

Lady Julia Osei Tutu in her address to participants at the Forum a day before the health walk, had encouraged, particularly women, to adopt simple regular physical practices to stay fit even as they go about with their daily chores at home.

She said “a walk from the shop front to the farthest end of the parking area, climbing stairs instead of taking lifts are all examples of daily activities which can contribute to the daily physical activity requirements.”

It was to give meaning to this advice that, as part of the forum, a 30 minute health walk, and aerobic session, was organized for the participants of the forum the next day.

The walk, which begun from the Manhyia Palace to the Airport Roundabout and back to Manhyia, was highly participated by some queen-mothers, ‘Keep Fit’ clubs as well as officials of some corporate organizations in the Region.

The participants after embarking on the walk were taken through some aerobic session to keep them fit.

Professor Agyemang Badu Akossah, who together with other dignitaries participated in the exercise, in a chat with the media advised that Ghanaians keep to regular daily physical exercise to stay healthy all the time.
