A childhood obesity prevention initiative

Solutions for weight problems

DKV works to prevent and reduce weight problems and obesity in children

We have launched an initiative which aims to address all those involved: children, parents, teachers, public administrations, the press, etc., and to help, with the support of everyone, to find a solution to the problem of childhood obesity. We will develop various action plans designed to raise awareness of the problem and encourage healthy habits from an early age.

Action designed to reach all parties involved

Children and adolescents

The YouTubers who are popular among children and adolescents join the fight against childhood obesity and teach the importance of leaving behind a sedentary lifestyle through their own favourite activity: videogames.

Parents

Parents play a fundamental role in raising awareness about the future among their children and encouraging a healthy diet accompanied by physical exercise. We want to help families to instil healthy habits with a view to combating obesity, with the help the Parent University.

Physicians

Another of the key players in the fight against childhood obesity in Spain are, of course, professional health care workers. Paediatricians from the DKV Seguros medical directory collaborate with this project from their surgeries.

Schools

We collaborate with schools where children are taught about the importance of a healthy diet and physical exercise, using the LEGO Education methodology, and we have launched the internationally known School Mile Challenge in Spain. We also promote healthy lifestyle habits in schools for disadvantaged students, in collaboration with Ayuda en Acción.
