Project description

Balanced Living through Healthy Nutrition Habits (BLHNH) addresses the challenge of promoting a mutually reinforcing combination between Sport activity and healthy practices of living (including proper nutrition and non-sedentary lifestyles) as a means of enhancing a greater physical and mental wellbeing at the level of the youth.

Why is this concept different?

BLHNH focuses on physical activity and healthy practices of living as complementary dimensions of the individual well-being, with a focus on young people. The project also draws a connection between the individual and the social dimensions of health. BLHNH translates into an actual focus and educational practice the social, economic and educational influence on levels of participation in physical activity and individual health, thereby connecting with the interdependence between socioeconomic/ educational disadvantage and lower levels of health.
