Tengelmann Group supports health initiative at Mülheim's day-care centers for children

In summer 2008, the city of Mülheim in cooperation with the sports federation Mülheimer Sportbund e. V. initiated a healthy living campaign entitled “Prima Leben”. The program initially focuses on ten day-care centers for children. A study in 2006 revealed that more than 10 percent of the children surveyed were overweight or obese, with an attendant effect on their mobility. To counter this trend the campaign’s initiators have developed a concept which is intended to teach kindergarten children about healthy eating and adequate exercise that is in line with their age. The aim is to make healthy living a systematic and sustainable reality in all Mülheim's day-care centers.
