Launched in 74 cities in France between 2014 and 2020, the Nutrissimo® Junior program is fully in line with the “prevention” component of the French Public Health law project, which aims to “build a sustainable, local prevention program for young people.”
Thanks to actions launched within the educational ecosystem, to reach all the actors concerned:
- For school, extracurricular and canteen staff: training in children’s nutrition and in running a food education program
- For the children: workshops-debates and discovery workshops set up during school time
- For schools and/or associations: the provision of a unique and innovative educational game
- For parents: a conference to raise awareness of the nutritional needs of children
In the long term, the initiative will make it possible to create a real dynamic around good nutrition for children in cities, by being a stepping stone towards a more in-depth approach to prevention.
