The educational programs are aimed at young families with children of kindergarten age and pursue the goal of supporting families in establishing and anchoring a healthy lifestyle in everyday life. Every kindergarten year, around 18,000 families with kindergarten children across Bavaria take part in 900 educational events organized by the Offices for Food, Agriculture and Forestry. The events are organized and supervised by professionally qualified and trained nutrition and exercise instructors.
