Why Los Salvacomidas
More and more children around the world are suffering from the problems of poor nutrition such as obesity and malnutrition, problems that tend to get worse when they grow up. As a result they can develop physical deficiencies and illnesses.
Last year's edition had more than 1,500 young participants from five autonomous communities in Spain: Andalusia, Galicia, Castilla y León, Madrid and the Basque Country. More than 50 schools embraced the learning process in terms of healthy habits, sustainable eating and entrepreneurial spirit that the programme offers, working competences through a classroom project that is aligned with the current LOMLOE regulation.
The objective is fo children work on skills in a healthy, transversal, original and fun way!
