Romania, Southwest Oltenia
In the south of Oltenia, the rural population, due to poverty and lack of education on healthy eating, took over from the elderly, a totally wrong concept about how to eat. Unhealthy examples of what to eat (specific to the area): instead of soup, eat bread soaked in wine (it is given even to young children); vinegar with bread, a lot of meat (especially pork). Consume a lot of alcohol, from the age of 5-6 years, certain plants are used to smoke (from an early age). The association aims to make people aware, with the help of local leaders, about the positive effects of changing family habits that greatly influence children's behavior, including eating habits, in the medium and long term.
Results: increasing the number of people who will follow at least one rule on how to combine foods or the type of efficient movement for a healthy lifestyle. The field of education, especially of young people, will be supported by holding monthly meetings within the school / church to bring to the fore events / debates about new obese people (or who have various ailments) and what food they should use.

Awareness of young people in rural areas as a proper diet, appropriate to age and movement also have a therapeutic purpose that are used to suppress some functional convalescences and deficiencies, in order to readjust to living conditions, school and work; make a certain type of exercise and eat healthy, alcohol, tobacco, drugs and other hallucinogenic substances are actually risk factors that can trigger a certain disease, "healthy lifestyle" is a the right dose of exercise, a rational diet, a pleasant conversation with friends and a good night's sleep. Organizing round tables-5, individual meetings-20, video presentations-5
After the implementation of PR activities, its results will become visible among decision-makers and relevant social actors at the local level, by increasing the number of people who will comply with at least one rule on how to combine food or the type of efficient movement for a style of healthy life. The field of education, especially of young people, will be supported by holding monthly meetings within the school / church to bring to the fore events / debates about new obese people (or who have various ailments) and what food they should use.
By implementing the project in the rural community, the new generations learn how to be, in the end, active citizens and to become community leaders, to be examples to follow. We also want to inform young people about "Healthy Lifestyles" in regions of the European Union.Information and communication online and through other means of mass communication of project results, exchange of experience on this topic with other associations / NGOs or other legal entities that carry out and promote similar activities as those in this project, in the rural area on the territory of Romania, ensures the synergy of these activities.
A proper diet is a healthy lifestyle. You need a healthy community around you to evolve economically and spiritually.
