Communal Environment

The project is based on a socio-ecological modell: the illustration shows in which framework a child develops. The interpersonal as well as the community environment offer situations which can either enable or inhibit healthy physical activity, the development of motor skills and a healthy eating behaviour.

Thus it is particularly important to identify those situations and factors in which a child has the possibility to learn healthy behaviour. The next step is to integrate these often and easily in every-day-life. Both, to identify factors and to develop interventions, is implemented by SALTO. Crucial for the success is the cooperation of the direct environment: Together with parents and kindergarten teachers we can achieve more.
