ERASMUS FOR FOOD EDUCATION TO CHILDREN AND TRAINERS
Childhood obesity and overweight are inevitable contemporary problems. The evolution of children’s diets over the last decades, coupled with an ever-lower energy expenditure, especially during the COVID-19 period, forces us to question the development and/or reinforcement of food education for children. In southern European countries this issue has a significant impact on the health and well-being of children. In this context, the EFFECT project aims to develop food education for primary school children in France, Greece and the USA.
The uniqueness of the project lies in the fact that the EFFECT project will develop training content for the children’s trainers, considering that only the training of the children’s ecosystem will allow the establishment of sustainable habits.
