ARC ‘s book launch event at B. Eydhafushi, for the HEAL Campaign storybook ‘The Grand Plan of the Gunge Gloop Group’, will be held on 28 July from 4.00- 6.00pm at Baa Atoll Education Centre. The event will also include fun and educational games and activities through which children can learn about the ’Dunk the Junk’ message of the HEAL Campaign.
The characters in the HEAL Campaign stories are chiefly representations of healthy and unhealthy food and drink, the setting consisting mostly of the playground and typical situations a child might face. The stories are designed to be warm, slightly absurd, and edifying towards a healthy eating and active lifestyle for children.
The first two storybooks in the HEAL series, ‘The Colourful Companionship of Casey Cabbage” and ‘the Sneaky Snare of the Syrupy Slurpslops’ received awards by Europe’s Gourmand Awards in 2013 and 2015 respectively. ARC’s 2nd book was also shortlisted amongst the best 6, for Europe’s Gourmand World Awards 2015 under the Best in the World (Children) category.

Eydhafushi Council, Baa Atoll Education Centre, The Beginner’s Club, Soneva Fushi Resort and Six Senses Spa.
