SALTO at the Kindergarten

SALTO wants with help of kindergarten teachers and parents to fill children with enthusiasm about healthy food and phyiscal activity.

A kindergarten which decides to participate in the project is guided by the SALTO project team to integrate topics to prevent childhood obesity. It is particularly important to work in line with requirements of kindergartens and parents because only this way it is possible to be successful in a long term. The specific course of action is therefore decided together with the persons involved.

All measures shall support and not burden the work at the kindergarten.

Frequently asked questions by kindergarten teachers can be looked up here.

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.
