Make your Child's Health a Priority

27 January 2017

Fourty-six children were entered into the Baby Competition held by Blanco Clinic in partnership with the United Reformed Church in Blanco. The aim of the competition was to promote the health of children and to educate parents on the different topics. The criteria included the physical and mental growth of the child, their immunisation history, vitamin A and deworming, general appearance and the parents’ knowledge regarding child care. Winners from each category received prizes sponsored by Rotary, clinic staff and the church at an event held on Saturday 21 January 2017.  
Every parent wants to see their child succeed in school and unlock opportunities for their future. Investing in their healthy development is crucial to achieving this. We appeal to the community to educate themselves about the health of their children. Information is available at your nearest clinic and staff will be happy to answer any questions you may have about the health of your child.  The winners were as follows:
0–1 yrs: 1st CJ Afrika, 2nd Ashton-Lee Gorah, 3rd Sasha-Lee Davids
1–2 yrs: 1st Cayriaan Geland, 2nd Caleb Rylan, 3rd Lenay Krotz
