Healthy from the very beginning

A healthy childhood leads to a healthy and active life.

Both nutrition and physical activity play an essential role in health promotion. For the healthy upbringing of our children nurseries or schools and families have to take mutual responsibility. Collective efforts of educators and parents form the basis for a sustainable setting-based approach to health promotion at an early stage of life.

Our motivation

vitakid is an independent non-profit organization.
We support the health promotion of children at an early age and promote a healthy and balanced diet. Nutrition and physical activity are essential parts for a sustainable health promotion.
Knowledge is an integral part of  healthy activities and healthy food. For this reason vitakid has established an internet-based knowledge and learning platform which connects nurseries or elementary schools with the families.
vitakid embraces the settings-based approach to health promotion and integrates these settings with modern tools to build a sustainable and cost-effective service supporting behavioral change – for a healthy and brightful future of the children.
Modern communication technology enables the efficient knowledge transfer in a unique and innovative way.
You can find a bright variety of different information: from the latest scientific findings in child nutrition (in an easy language) to day-to-day recommendations for meals at home and the appropriate recipe.
All information and services can easily be accessed by mobile devices or the computer.
By taking advantage of these services childcare institutions and families take their health promotion partnership to a new level – for the exclusive benefit of the children.
Our main focus was to be able to offer this innovative approach to as many children as possible and to support a sustainable health promotion and a healthy life.
Because children deserve a chance of a healthy, active and happy life – from the very beginning!

Our approach

vitakid has taken the setting approach for health promotion to the next level and has built an innovative learning and knowledge platform that integrates nurseries or schools with the families.
The platform contains educational and informational offerings – and personalised recommendations for the families. These are the perfect conditions to bring nutritional education and physical activity into the day-to-day life of childcare institutions and parents.
A holistic health promotion for children requires good communication structures between nurseries or elementary schools and families. This vital partnership is supported and enriched by vitakid.
Personalised nutritional coaching is also included: both institutions and families are provided with direct access to our nutritional experts.
With vitakidsetting-based approaches to health promotion are not an abstract concept anymore but a very practical example of health promotion – for the benefit of our children!
