Active parents – healthy children

Vitalina in both Basels

It is common knowledge that parents want the best for their children, but are often not sufficiently aware of the interrelationship between diet, exercise and healthy development. The project supplies easily accessible information about this interrelationship free of cost to foreign language speakers who are parents of pre-school children.


Information in the mother tongue

Intercultural facilitators trained by HEKS/EPER visit places frequented by parents with young children and speak directly with mothers and fathers whose cultural background they share, in the language concerned. These places include playgrounds, parks, popular meeting places in the district, playgroups or migrants' associations. The facilitators talk with parents about eating habits in the family, about the connection between diet, exercise and health, and offer practical tips for everyday family life. They also draw attention to programmes on offer in the canton and municipalities, such as counselling for mothers and fathers.
