Descripción del proyecto
Our mission is to promote healthy lifestyle and ensure the wellness of the students from early ages through teaching them healthy habits and adequate values. We have only one healthy body to take care of and preserve the best possible, and this depends on us, our parents and our environment. During last years new proffessionals have joined the staff of the educational centers like speech therapists, psychologists or psicopedagogists to take care of children´s health mind. But, what about their bodies? «Mens Sana in Corpore Sano» (Una mente sana en cuerpo sano) says the ancient Greek proverb and it has been proven by modern science.
In Apple Project our main target is work against inactivity and obesity from early ages. During the past few decades, the prevalence of obesity in children has risen greatly worldwide and in Europe Spain is one of the most affected country. Obesity is a chronic disease increasing the risk of premature illness and death, and causing a wide range of serious complications. Its fast development can be primarily attributed to adverse environmental factors taking place at the school and at home among others. The best tool for the fight against this disease is prevention, which can be implemented by supplying information and education about healthy habits and encouraging kids (and everybody) to do more physical activity.
