"Strengthening resources, minimizing barriers" - Module for Kindergarten Teachers

The first six months are used to get to know each other. Through various activities, the kindergarten learns how SALTO works and develops a keen and searching eye for obesity related topics. Together, we also find out the kindergartens strengths and weaknesses. Building on this, a workshop follows where we define a topic on which we are going to work together for the next six months. All measures will be implemented in the daily routines of the kindergarten. The SALTO Team supports with tips and tricks, as well as tailormade material.


"Parents with Parents" – Module for Parents

Besides committed kindergarten teams, we are also looking for committed parents for SALTO. We want to find "SALTO-parents" for every kindergarten who would like to be the mouthpiece between parents, kindergarten teachers and the SALTO-Team. Only if we work together, is it possible to offer children a health-enhancing environment.

In addition, the SALTO-Team is organising "Take-Home-Activities" that give parents with less time the opportunity to participate with their child. "Take-Home-Activities" are activities that are shared via e-mail and the kindergarten and which can be easily completed in the daily life.

Of course, the parents are constantly supported by the project team. 


And also...

We create awareness for SALTO with topics at the community level to shape the framework conditions. A possible goal could be a safe walking path to the kindergarten, or involving local sport associations or shops for healthier offers. Social Norms Marketing also promotes healthy behaviour.

Children's behaviour is strongly influenced by their surrounding, precisely their families and the kindergarten. Therefore all interventions focus on these two target groups:
