Escola Missão Continente is an educational programme, directed at schools in the 1st Cycle of Basic Education. It was implemented during the 2016/17 academic year, from the north to the south of the country. It aims to help students, parents and teachers to have a healthier, more positive relationship with food and encourages responsible consumption.
Those who participated in the project’s 1st edition benefitted from the opportunity to be with nutritionists from Continente and the Local Health Centre, in sessions where they learnt more about food and became more aware of the importance of adopting a healthy lifestyle, namely to prevent health issues such as diabetes, cholesterol and obesity.
During the sessions, the sharing of information on healthy food was delivered in a ludic way. There were also challenges throughout the school year, where students were encouraged to develop projects on the origin of food and healthy food, thus testing their knowledge and imagination.
The winning schools for each challenge were awarded with school supplies. The final Prize – the school with the best performance out of all the challenges – was a day spent at Football City, providing a unique and unforgettable experience for the students. Read more ▼close ▲
