THINKING ABOUT THAT, WE CREATED GASTROMOTIVA’S FOOD SUPER LEAGUE
A new project in Gastromotiva which aims to alert about the problems in child obesity and disclose the vital importance of healthy diet.
The Super League was born from concerns which Gastromotiva and its students had related to the problems found on poor communities regarding children obesity. The implementation began with the TAC (Trabalho de Ação nas Comunidades – Active Work on Poor Communities) applied during the training course, and acquired a bigger scope, becoming an independent project in itself.
This way, we created actions and formats with playful and funny approaches, aiming to construct relations and attract children and adults (parents, caretakers, supervisors, school directors) and sensitize and disclose illnesses and complications branched from a poor diet.
In 2015, Gastromotiva won an award from Amil, with the Award for Fighting Children Obesity, due to efforts made with the Super League. That award was awfully important to validate and publicize the project, which in such short time had conditions to prove its impact on society.
