Viasano wants to prevent overweight and obesity among Belgian children aged 3 to 12 by mobilising all local actors around them. The programme gives resources to the towns (representatives and administrative employees) to organise local actions, that incite people to eat healthier and move more, creating a stimulating environment where a healthy lifestyle is easy to maintain.
The goal of the Viasano programme is to help families change their habits in a sustainable way. It is founded upon the Epode-methodology, follows official scientific and nutritional recommendations and encourages families to prepare healthy, accessible and varied family dinners, as well as organise physical activities, adapted to everyday life.
