Preventing the development of obesity among children and the youth is an international health priority.

The first years of life are essential for starting preventive approaches that can have an impact on lifestyle and on developing overweight or obesity.

In the case of kids, prevention strategies should concern parents, primary caregivers, schools, social networks, media, and the wider community.

All of these groups should promote a healthy lifestyle with an appropriate level of PA and diet—either by providing an example to follow or by providing/favoring a supportive environment.

SAUNA rolls out programs in communities that equip parents with the latest modules to combat physical inactivity as a remedy for obesity and Non-Communicable Diseases (NCDs) in children.

SAUNA organizes training programs for parents at community level.

The idea is to create a Fitness and Wellness ambassador in every home.
