CEIDSS is happy to announce the approval of the project “Eat Mediterranean” where it will participate as a major partner. The project is coordinated by the Health Regional Directorate of Lisbon and Tagus Valley (ARS Lisboa e Vale do Tejo) and funded by the EEA Grants.
The project is developed towards 6000 children from a scholar community in Santarém and Alpiarça (Portuguese cities).
This is a community-based intervention program with the aim of contributing to the reduction of nutritional inequalities within the schools and family settings, by promoting the Mediterranean Diet.
It follows the World Health Organization Public Health strategy, giving priority to the school environment. The project has a strong consortium where the educational community and the network of partners have an important role.
