In this original workshop, designed by the Onassis Cultural Centre-Athens, in collaboration with Prolepsis Institute of Preventative Medicine, Environmental and Occupational Health, Athens, children learn to eat well... through music.
Healthy eating habits are formed during childhood and adolescence. In this programme, musical notes... ‘invade’ the classroom, prompting students to improve their food choices and do more exercise.
Grouped in teams, students explore the concepts of healthy eating and exercise. In this process, musical notes are the protagonists... Through musical storytelling, children learn about eating habits. At the same time, role-playing enables them to grasp the meaning of healthy weight, food groups, meal frequency, and food combining.
Students learn to love healthy food and exercise through song, rhymes, movement, and improvisation. It is a fun and creative process, involving playing with words and music!
