Sodexo is developing the education for nutrition program “I eat healthy at school” dedicated to children of primary, gymnasium and high school that are taught to eat in balanced way during the snack break at school. The program is developed by Sodexo in partnership with the students from Medicine University „Carol Davila” in Bucharest.
The program “I eat healthy at school” was launched in Bucharest on October

The program’s activities developed under the form of interactive workshops included until now about 700 children with ages between 6 - 18 years old.
With the Medicine students they create the menu of a healthy snack for school, learn what nutrition rules they should follow to be in good health and find answers to the most important questions about the impact of nutrition on health issues according to various ages.
