"Creixem a bon ritme" (Let’s grow well) Campaign

Prades has joined the Thao-Salut programme for the prevention of child obesity and the promotion of healthy living.

According to the latest study by the Thao Foundation, excess weight in children is a major problem and affects 28.3% of children, the highest rate in Europe.

As a result of the agreement signed by the Diputació de Tarragona and the Thao Foundation Prades will be taking part in this programme. Activities will involve a range of different participants from the area (from Education, Health and Leisure). All the activities will be advertised with posters, news, a website, etc. All children in local nursery and primary school will also be weighed and measured in order to find out the incidence of obesity and overweight in local children.
