Trzymaj Forme! – Keep Fit! (PL)
Keep Fit programme is the first educational initiative of its kind, promoting a balanced diet and physical activity among Polish teenagers.
The key objective of the programme is to educate teenagers in order to encourage them to adopt a healthy active lifestyle and a balanced diet based on individual responsibility and free choice. This, through the programme didactic method based on the voluntary involvement of students, teachers, parents and local governments.
The design of the programme, that leaves space for schools, teachers and adolescents to choose their implementation methods, has undoubtedly contributed to its effectiveness. Through this programme, the schoolchildren have the opportunity to identify and put into practice their own ideas on how to promote and ensure the adoption of a healthy lifestyle in the long term. The recent evaluation of the programme demonstrated its high effectiveness in terms of shaping pro-health habits.
