PEOPLE can now use the new Milo Mile 25 metre sprint track and state of the art fitness equipment situated at the new Seabreeze Walkway along the Nasese foreshore in Suva.

Minister for Health Dr Neil Sharma officially opened the new Milo Mile track before testing out the new equipment.

Nestle Fiji country manager Jean-Michel Lejeune said the Milo Mile was a positive step to creating a healthier population.

"Milo is all about living a healthy and active life and the Milo Miles are an ideal way for Nestle Fiji to make a difference to the health of the nation," Mr Lejeune said.

He said the unveiling of the Milo Mile was timely as the World Health Organization will celebrate its World Health Day today with a focus on high blood pressure.

"One in three adults around the globe has high blood pressure and about 17 million die each year of cardiovascular disease.

"High blood pressure is preventable and treatable through a healthy diet and regular exercise and our Milo Mile initiatives are good fun way for people to start following a healthier lifestyle."

The 1.6 kilometre track features six aerobic and resistance exercise stations designed to provide a full body workout. Nestle Fiji introduced the unique concept of the Milo Mile in 2010 with the support of the government as part of its long term commitment to the nutrition, health and wellness of Fijians.
