Many children in the Arab world suffer from obesity and Type 2 Diabetes, along with a whole host of related health problems, because they have adopted poor eating habits and are not active enough.
To tackle this problem, the Dasman Diabetes Institute of lebanon (DDI) developed Little Plato Magazine. Each month DDI prints 10,000 copies of the magazine in Arabic and English and distributes it, in cooperation with the Ministry of Health, to public and private schools across lebanon.
Since its creation in early 2012, Little Plato Magazine has expanded to develop many additional resources, including an electronic version of the magazine, videos, voice-overs, iPad and Android games, a yearly diary, colouring books, recipe books, and a teacher’s guide.
Our website now hosts Health News and Views, a forum updating readers on the latest health news, and Little Plato Café, a blog site that welcomes reader contributions.
