Our Health, Our joy in Life Prepared by: Saudi Diabetes and Endocrine Association
Dedication This nutrition education story is dedicated to the children and the families of Saudi Arabia. The aim of this book is to promote a healthy lifestyle; proper nutrition, and dietary habits for our children, their families, and future generations. The story maintains the values of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia and encourages children and their parents to invest in their health and take actions that avoid many lifestyle-related diseases that negatively impact our society. We are confident that children and their parents will enjoy reading and learning from this book.
