The Project

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.

The project is based on the, by the World Health Organisation (WHO) accepted, EPODE method and is characterised by the fact that all relevant stakeholders - starting with children, parents and care givers - to politics and science are equally involved. Thus SALTO rests on a solid scientific foundation and pools existing ressources perfectly. This is important because lifelong healthy habits are only developed in a healthenhancing environment.

Find out more about the project through our Video (German language). If you cannot watch it on this site, please change to our SALTO Youtube-Channel.
