The DIATROFI Program offers every day school meals all over Greece and promotes healthy nutrition habits.
The malnourishment of children and childhood obesity are two sides of the same coin. According to data collected for the in school year 2016-2017 in schools which participated in the DIATROFI Program and are located in underprivileged areas: 61,1% of our students' families are facing food insecurity while 31% of our students are overweight or obese.
Food insecurity problems have been mitigated, the consumption of healthier foods in children has increased while healthier dietary habits have been adopted by students and their families!
DIATROFI - the Program on Food Aid and Promotion of Healthy Nutrition is implemented in primary and secondary public schools in socioeconomically vulnerable areas across Greece, from Athens all the way to Thrace!
Our meals have been designed by the Prolepsis Institute's scientific requirements in order to cover the children's nutritional needs. Since 2012, more than 14 million meals have been distributed to 110.500 students in 600 schools of the country.
