Welcome to the Paideiatrofi program
The Paideiatrofi program aims at preventing childhood obesity, involving local stakeholders in a sustainable way
The duration of the first phase of the program is 4 years and the participating municipalities are at its heart, through continual and focused actions targeting children and their families. The messages of the program – although based on scientific recommendations – are given in a direct, understandable and enjoyable way.
National Coordination Team
Nostus Communications & Events has undertaken the national coordination of the Paideiatrofi program in Greece, using social marketing and organizational techniques to coach local project managers and local teams.
The National Coordination Team provides continuous education and training, plans new approaches relying on group dynamics and social policies modification and provides communication and PR services on public health issues towards health professionals and the general public.
The Coca-Cola Foundation is the Grand Sponsor of PAIDEIATROFI, recognizing the program’s contribution in preventing childhood obesity and actively supporting its next steps towards this direction.
This support is in line with the Company’s global commitment in promoting physical activity and balanced nutrition, aiming at the prevention of childhood obesity.
The philosophy and actions of PAIDEIATROFI are recognized by many governmental and scientific institutions in Greece, which are supporters of the program.
