What is SALTO?

SALTO stands for "SALzburg Together against Obesity". It is a regional prevention initiative starting from the setting kindergarten and reaching out into the community. We want to get children enthusiastic about eating healthier and being physically more active - with help of kindergarten teachers and parents. SALTO wants to raise the number of children entering school with a healthy weight.

Did you know...

...that "puppy fat" hardly ever disappears in time? Most of overweight children also become overweight adolescents and adults.

...many kindergartens already implement healthy nutrition and physical activity at their institution? Precisely because of this fact they are the ideal partners for SALTO.

...that children often model themselves on parents regarding nutritian and physical activity? This is why SALTO is also particularly adressing parents.

... that already every second to third child is overweight? Thus it is about time to counteract this trend with SALTO.
