"great pleasure in healthy eating"
naturheilzentrum bottrop and sb music production will start with the project "adikids" in the "playing area" (spielraum).
since the end of 2012 the project "adikids" has found a fixed location in the "playing area" (spielraum) provided by the city department of youth and school, at prosperstraße 71. the service of the association of obesity, germany (adipositas verband deutschland e.v.), has set itself the goal of giving obese children the fun and pleasure of dance and movement. the group members from the age of six to thirteen meet regularly on tuesdays from 17.30 to 18.30 hours. at the press conference, those interested were once again warmly invited to participate in the activities in the "spielraum".
background: on behalf of a health insurance company, the forsa institute interviewed pediatricians nationwide. the results are alarming: 95 percent of the surveyed physicians diagnosed primary school children between the ages of six and eight with many health problems and obesity. an unhealthy diet, a lack of exercise and too much time on the computer or watching tv were the reasons given by the doctors for this development.
naturheilzentrum bottrop, "sb music production" and the department of youth and school want to counteract this development in our children through their involvement for our children. the participants in the "adikids" project are to be taught in a playful manner how to enjoy healthy eating and how to prepare meals with little effort.
the primary schools in bottrop are also invited to participate in the project. you are welcome to subscribe through norbert eickholt of the youth and school department by calling 70-3636.
