Sharing knowledge to support a healthy childhood

Every child has the right to grow up healthy. Our community brings together programmes from around the world that work to promote a healthy weight in our young people. Join our international community to discuss the good practices and challenges we encounter in promoting a healthy environment and lifestyle for youngsters.

Through exchange our aim is to obtain insights and effective solutions that will successfully address the challenges we face in implementing our programmes. Learn more about the four most common challenges encountered by our community.
